2016 Charles & Charles Rosé Review

You know what time it is… Wine of the Week! This week I’m reviewing a 2016 Rosé from Charles and Charles, a local wine from Columbia Valley, Washington. This wine was found at QFC, a grocery store chain in Seattle, Washington on sale for $9.99. Such a steal for the quality of this Rosé.

Notes:

60% Syrah, 17% Grenache, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Mourvèdre, 2% Cinsault and 1% Counoise.

“The color is a pale salmon, copper pink with flashes of fuchsia. The aromatics lead with notes of wild raspberry and cherry, giving in to bright citrus, Herbs de Provence and lavender. There’s a strong note of rose petal as well. All this carries through on a light and dynamic palate with a tangy bright finish.” (http://www.wine.com/v6/Charles-and-Charles-Rose-2016/wine/169670/Detail.aspx)

Pairings:

I found a great article from Fiona Beckett called Matching Food & Wine. The article breaks down different kinds of Rosé and the foods that pair best with them including: light, dry Rosé, light off-dry Rosé, medium dry Rosé, elegant, fruity Rosé, full-bodied fruity Rosé, sparking Rosé and Rosé Champagne.
