You had me at rosé. For 2011, drink your pink with a little ink.

Wine-pro cliché #284: Rosé is not just for summer. But we all know most of NRNW (neither-red-nor-white) wine does get drunk between the Day of Remembering and the Day of not Laboring, so let’s discuss. Whether because of vintage or just because the weather’s been so durn unreliable and weirdly cool, I’m loving the darker rosés right now — or what in southern Europe they used to call, um, Red Wine. Grenache, Cannonau (which is Grenache), Syrah. From Spain, Sardinia, and Washington State. In a couple of weeks I’ll check in with Provençe and related light-pink regions.
