From vineyards situated in the foothills of the Pyrénées near the Mediterranean Sea, this blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Grenache really shines with an almost total fruit infusion on the nose and palate. It is flashy, forthcoming and delicious, with the essence of raspberries and cherries, just a hint of coriander and slate-like minerals. This will be one of our house rosés for the month according to Anderson, Eby, the Bean and Rizzo. 13% ABV. (Jim Barr)

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
