TABLAS CREEK “Patelin de Tablas” Rosé 2017
(Paso Robles, California) $25
There are a lot of light rosés on the market. This isn’t one of them. This is the sort of old fashioned, spicy, bold, dramatic rosé they drink in the south of Europe with bouillabaisse, gazpacho, and other garlic-laced dishes. Garlic can make many wines go anemic. Not this number.
