In the Pink: The Best Roses for the Summer

A rosé by any other name …
… would still smell just as sweet, but the pink wines of yore have given way todrier versions. And while you can still find plenty of California white Zinfandel,most restaurants are focused on rosés from everywhere else, or maybeeverywhere.

Winemakers haven’t stopped using Zinfandel grapes, but virtually any red grapecan be made into tasty blush wine, so these days you’ll find pink Pinot Noir,Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, whatever is at hand. The Left Coastoffers hundreds, if not thousands, of options; this week my favorites includeBonny Doon ($15), Meyer Family ($18), Simi ($16), St. Supery ($18) and TablasCreek ($25).

France’s Provence has represented the pinnacle of pink for decades. You can findplenty of delightful southern French rosés around town; among the best areDomaine Tempier ($30), Mirabeau ($17) and Jean Luc Colombo’s Cape Bleue($14).

Only slightly farther inland, rosé makers include Chateau d’Aqueria Tavel ($20),Mas de Dames ($21) and Perrin Cotes du Rhone ($12). Of course, Hollywood’s favorite ex-couple Brangelina make a rosé called Miraval that I could mention here, but don’t they get enough PR on their own?
