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.
