This Mistral Vallee Rose’, the 2019 Luberon from the French Rhone region scored 16 Dionysian points, has 13% alcohol and cost under $14.

Wild strawberry nose, salmon color, and dry-fruity taste. Skip any Rose’ not made with some Grenache.

Great with shrimp salad.

I start each spring with 4 or 5 cases of quality dry Rose’s for the summer and early Autumn drinking on the deck. I’m down to my last week’s worth. In Vino Veritas.
