Here’s a bottle that’s perfect for summer drinking on a hot day, particularly around a pool or at the beach, and Costco’s price is right.
This French Rosé is $14.99 for the big 1.5L bottle. That’s a lot of Rosé, but if you’re like me it has a tendency to go down pretty fast when the setting’s right.
This Rosé is 70% Grenache and 30% Cinsault, and pours a light pink in the glass; peachy nose with citrus fruit. In the mouth, dry with more peach, apricot and green apple flavors with nice acidity. Good refreshing finish.
Overall, just exactly what you’re hoping to find in a summer wine that’s a pretty remarkable value for the equivalent of $7.50/bottle.
