Jean-Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rose, 2014 is a delicious representation of Rosé although there are many different styles, bodies, and flavors. This particular one is a blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Mourvedre. Subtle hints of peach, watermelon, and rose petal on the nose with beautiful flavors of raspberries, strawberries, and cherries. It had a delicious creaminess about it as it sat in my glass a little longer. Good acidity and great mouthfeel. This is easy to drink on its own but can be easily paired with cheeses, fish, and vegetarian fare.
So the next time you’re invited to that summer party and you want to bring a bottle, pick from the many different options there are of Rosé.
