Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache, Gérard Bertrand, Côte des Roses, Languedoc AOP, France, 2020, 13.5% abv. US$15

One of the things I like to do most when in the US is to shop in the liquor section in Costco.  Usually that just serves to get me really riled up though – because I become overwhelmingly jealous at all the fabulous deals I don’t have regular access to – especially with regard to spirits.

There was no way I was going to get through the 1.5 litre size of bourbon (unless I wanted to seriously offer up my liver) on a recent vacation to Hawaii.  So, I went for this lovely, yet innocuous bottle of rosé. 

On the eyes, this wine is a pretty shade of pale watermelon with aromas of light strawberry with green grass.  The palate is dry with more watermelon and strawberry, pink grapefruit, green hay, white flower, and a touch of garrigue.  

There’s nothing too memorable about it, but the price point is pleasing.  So, go for it – and enjoy it on a patio or at the pool.  Follow it up with bourbon shots.

I love wine...and finally decided to do something about it.
