We'll start off with one of our all-time favorites, year in and year out.
Chateau Puech Haut Rosé 2017 (Languedoc-Roussillon, France)
"The 2017 Prestige Rosé is another beautiful rosé from this estate. Spice, underbrush, cherries, citrus blossom and beautiful minerality all emerge from the glass and it's rich, yet also fresh and crisp. It's a food rosé to drink over the coming year. It's a blend of 60/40 Grenache and Cinsault aged in tank." (Jeb Dunnuck)

"Cantaloupe and white raspberry notes are fresh and elegant in this rosé, with mineral and herb details imparting a savory undertone through the spice-tinged finish. 10,000 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
Wine Spectator: 88 points
"The 2017 Languedoc Rosé Prestige is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault. It's medium-bodied, crisp and clean, offering up plenty of peach and melon fruit and closing on modest citrus notes." (Wine Advocate)

$19.99/bottle or just $15.99/bottle in a solid or mixed case of wine. rosé
Capcanes Mas Donis Rosat 2017 (Montsant, Spain)
"If Priorat is the nutmeg, then Montsant is the mace. Almost completely surrounding the DOQ of Priorat, the DO Montsant is one of the youngest DOs in Catalunya but like the neighboring Priorat viticulture here is centuries old Rose-violet-medium in color. A serious wine at an extremely friendly price. The Mas Donis Rosat is a saignée from tanks of Garnatxa and Syrah bled after a few days in the skins." (Winemaker's Notes)
Wine Enthusiast: 85 points
$13.99/bottle or just $11.19/bottle in a solid or mixed case of wine.
Cantina Santa Maria La Palma Aragosta 2017 (Sardinia, Italy)
"This modest rosé shows a minerally overtone to the lively flavors of peach skin, orange peel and pastry cream." (Wine Spectator) It's pleasantly fresh, distinct aroma is refined with a slight suggestion of roses and wild fruits.
$11.99/bottle or just $9.59/bottle in a solid or mixed case of wine.
Chateau Ste. Michelle Rose 2017 (Washington, USA)
"Mouthwatering and lively, with appealing strawberry and watermelon flavors." (Wine Spectator)
