Cougar Crest Grenache Rose 2007

Who said that summer was over?


Each year I try a fair number of white and rose wines in the summer time. In terms of the latter, Cougar Crest’s 2007 Grenache Rose is one of the best I had this year. The wine is crisp and refreshing without any of the sweetness that sometimes winds its way into roses. Unfortunately the winery shipped the wine a bit late for the summer season. Not to worry, this would be an excellent Thanksgiving wine and also has enough legs to last until next summer.


NB: I received this wine from the winery. Please post a comment if you see the wine available on the shelves somewhere.

Cougar Crest Grenache Rose 2007

Pink grapefruit and mineral aromas predominate. The wine is fairly deep red in color for a rose. On the taste, the wine is medium-bodied with a pleasing texture and a crisp finish. 14.1% alcohol.

$18
