Wary of buying a Rosé because you think it looks too much like the “pink wine” your mom used to buy in a box? The 2008 Domaine Sorin Rosé is a blend of seven grapes, Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre Carignan, Rolle, and Orgi, and hails from Provence in the South of France, a region famous for its dry rosés. This is a great “beginner” rosé for those not completely convinced its not synonymous with Franzia. Although lacking in a great deal of complexity, this wine delivers lovely mineral, floral, and citrus characteristics. It also looks beautiful pouring from the bottle, glinting a subtle gold hue layered with its namesake color. If this wine were a cocktail, the taste is similar to a vodka tonic with tendrils of lemon rind and lemon juice tossed in for flavor. Don’t be scared to buy the pink wine. You may be pleasantly surprised at how much you enjoy it.
