ABACELA Grenache Rosé 2019

(Umpqua Valley, Oregon) $19

Kicking off summer without laying in a half case of good rosé seems a little half-hearted. Summer IS, after all, the time to drink not think. (The very definition of quaffing). Here’s your wine—a simple, lovely, very-affordable rosé that’s as fresh as iced strawberries. Plus loads of crisp pink grapefruit and cherry flavors. There may be dozens of rosés on store shelves these days, but all rosés are not created equal (a rosé is not a rosé is not a rosé), and far too many are sour, thin, and skunky. In our recent tastings, we liked this Abacela from southern Oregon for going up against some pricier, fancier competitors–and still tasting the best! (13.2% abv)
