Excelsior Wine Company has introduced the 2017 vintage of LBD Rosé and it’s a winner. You must get some now. Highlighting LBD Wines’ commitment to crafting top quality wines only when growing conditions deliver exceptional grapes, the current vintage is bursting with flavors of fresh strawberries, bright red fruit, juicy watermelon and a crisp, bright and balanced acid with semi-sweet finish. Crafted by winemaker Margaret Leonardi at the brand’s winery in Mendocino Country, CA, this Rosé is a delightful accompaniment to light summer dishes, especially salads, fish, grilled meats, and fresh cheese, or enjoyed by itself as a cocktail such as the LBD Spritzer. LBD Rosé is available throughout the United States through Excelsior Wine Company at an SRP of $11.99.
One sip of the fresh, salmon-hued Les Lauriers Des Barons Edmond Benjamin de Rothschild 2017 Rosé will transport you to the south of France: to the lavender-blanketed and olive tree-studded countryside so beloved by us all. This is a crisp wine brimming with raspberry and citrus with a complex mineral character that is refreshing and affordable enough to open on a whim, and interesting enough to sit and contemplate as the sun goes down. About $17 a bottle.
2017 Jezreel Valley Winery rosé from Israel is a delightful fusion of Carignan, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc that yields a light and vigorous rosé wine with balanced acidity and delicate fruit aromas. About $22.
2017 ADAMA Barbera Rosé, Galilee, is another worthy dry rosé from Israel, fruit forward with alluring brilliant almost candy pink color from the Ramat Sirin vineyard. Bright red fruit aromas with a clean freshness makes for a delightful wine. About $16.
