La Vieille Ferme Rose 2008 wine review review by PB)
These folks just know how to make value wine! This rose which I just bought for $7 is made from Grenache and Cinsault. It is a pretty light strawberry hued wine with spicy, sweet aromas of the same with grapefruit rind touches.
Palate--bracing acidity with gentle, bright fruit and a pleasing fruity finish. This rose is bone dry, and a solid summer quencher with mouth tingling liveliness. Chill it down and raise a glass and at this price, buy several bottles for those hot, poolside respites from the daily grind.
