I’m spending the week with a very good friend in California who said to me recently, “I don’t like rosés.” So this week I’m on a mission to share my favorite rosés, perhaps convince my friend to find his inner pink, and maybe improve his wine taste in general.
I love rosé. Partially, I love it because it’s pink, but I also love it because so many people undervalue it. I recommended a rosé to a guy the other day and he said, um, I’d rather have a white, not pink. I launched into a quick defense of pink, but he wouldn’t be swayed. Some guys (and gals, for that matter) simply refuse to find their inner pink.
Let me make two things clear about rosé:
In the past few years, I’ve grown to love rosé because it can embrace so many different characteristics. It can be made from a multitude of different grapes and often has the heft of a red with the chill of white.
So stay tuned this week for a recap of some of my favorite pinks.
