Margerum Rivera Rose 2016 February 24, 2017

MARGERUM "Riviera" Rosé 2016

(Santa Barbara County, California) $21

This might be the most sophisticated rosé you drink all spring and summer. A burst of spicy, minerally coolness, Margerum’s Riviera Rosé is the merest tint of pink, like a subtle watercolor. (No cherry popsicle-color here). It’s made from grenache, syrah, counoise and cinsault—the grapes often used in southern French rosés. Unlike so many French rosés, however, there’s a vividness and energy here. If you want to put winter behind you, this is the way. (12% abv)
