Here is one of the first pink wines to arrive this year from what appears to be a fantastic vintage in the Loire Valley. This is bursting with bright red berry fruit, hints of savory herb and a mouth-cleansing mineral freshness. One sip of this and you will feel like summer is already here.

When it comes to Rosé, the secret is out. Wine drinkers worldwide now understand just how unbelievably delicious and dynamic these wines can be. The Domaine Les Pins is just how I like my Rosé: dry and slightly fruity with a long, crisp finish. Furthermore, Cabernet Franc lends just the slightest hint of herbaceous complexity. Yum. Drink up!

We just brought this baby in and it's already flying out of the door! Firstly, it's delicious. Second, it's eleven bucks. Showing notes of fresh strawberries, pepper and wet rocks, this bottle is a tremendous expression of cab franc rose. It's also available in larger formats just in case you're expecting company.

Additional Information:


Cabernet Franc

- While Cabernet Franc, a parent with Sauvignon Blanc to the ubiquitous Cabernet Sauvignon, frequently plays second fiddle in Bordeaux blends (though it does get more props on the Right Bank, where it dominates Cheval Blanc), this lighter, higher acid/lower tannin, early-maturing, perfumed red varietal is far from a wallflower. It is the headliner in the Loire Valley appellations of Saumur-Champigny, Bourgueil, St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, Chinon and Anjou-Villages, where it makes exceptional, food-friendly wines. Outside of France, Cabernet Franc can be found in northern Italy, particularly in Friuli and in California where it is frequently used as a blending grape in Bordeaux-style wines. Heartier in the cold than Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc is gaining a foothold in northern and eastern wine regions like Canada, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.


- 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.

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
