Thoughts: While this may not be the easiest wine to find it is a fantastic reminder of the quality (and value) to be found in sparkling wine outside of the Champagne region. This is very impressive rosé, and for $20 or less is an absolute steal. Time to do some internet shopping so you can have this on hand the next time you want to impress a date or mark a special occasion - at this price, a few dollars for shipping still makes it more than worthwhile. Not that this wine needs a celebration to be enjoyed. It's perfect to drink by itself, but will work with a variety of foods too from chicken or white fish, a bowl of spaghetti or even a classic Margherita pizza. This is a perfect candidate for any Tuesnight when you just need some bubbly to help the week go by faster!
