“Des Amis” or “the Friends” have made an incredible Rosé from a blend of grapes that have been friends, which is to say complimentary, since since the times of yore (it is a classic Bordeaux blend!). You may notice that CoWineCo doesn’t carry many Bordeaux varietal Rosés (& it is not by accident). The blend on top of the rich magenta-pink, darker hue of the wine may rightfully give one second thoughts, or the wrong impression about this wine. Perhaps that it is sweet, syrupy, or painfully fruit forward, when in fact it's the opposite! These guys got it right. Very dry, beautifully acidic & zippy, with a light, nuanced wild cherry & strawberry. A tad bit of melon, dried spice/herb & even rose flavors make this a serious standout in an increasing plethora of Rosés on the market.
