Wine Review: This coral colored Rose from Cotes du Provence opens with a grapefruit and lager beer like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied with nice controlled acidity that leads to a mouthwatering feel. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry and mild grapefruit blend with notes of lime and tangerine. The finish is dry and refreshing. This is a versatile wine that will pair with lots of foods. I would serve it with a crab cake sandwich near the ocean on a hot day this summer. Enjoy – Ken

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
