 Randal makes a terrific, classically styled rosé and the 2016 Vin Gris de Cigare Rosé is reminiscent of a classy pink from Provence. Grapefruit, strawberries, spice and hints of rose petal all emerge from this medium-bodied, supple, elegant and straight up delicious rose. (JebDunnuck.com)  (8/2017)

This Delicious Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre rosé comes from the brilliant minds at Bonny Doon, who cleverly reference the fabled UFO citings of the Rhône in their label. Randal Grahm takes a hands off approach to winemakeing, which allows the natural characteristics of the fruit to shine through. The Alta Loma and Beeswax Vineyards in Monterey provide the fruit, which creates distinctive richness and complexity in the wine. Aromas of peony, Ripe strawberry and stony mineral tantalize, and just may transport you to another galaxy.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
