Seeing Summer Through Rosé Bottles

If you are a rosé lover ―and isn’t this the summer for it ― then your ship has just come in.  Cupcake, that California wine company synonymous with value wines from throughout the world, sometimes comes up with real gems.  Last summer it was a sparkler from France’s Loire that was absolutely the hit of the summer 0f ’11.  Many a patio sported that bubbly to foil the heat, and we still get many requests for it but, alas, Cupcake has moved on.

Not to worry! Just in to add refreshment to a warm sunny day is Cupcake Côtes du Provence Rosé.  From the 2011 vintage, bottled in Provence itself, and priced at $5.97 per bottle, this rose is an absolute steal!

This is real Provence rosé ―that beautiful onion-skin color, more orange than pink; the alluring scents of rose petals, lavender and strawberries and the crisp, delicate flavors that are hauntingly  pure, clean and penetrating that linger on and on yet refresh the palate and brighten our spirits.  Pick up a few bottles before the summer comes to a close, and enjoy!
