When it Comes to Wine: For Summer, Pour the Pink

Cool off with these refreshing rosé wines offered by the glass, and take a sip of summer! 

Charles & Charles, Syrah/Mourvedre, Columbia Valley, Washington 2012 
"Rooty-tooty fresh and fruity" is how you could describe this blend from Washington state's Columbia Valley, which features aromas of wild strawberries and cherries, along with subtle florals like rose and hibiscus. With a touch of citrus, this lovely wine also has underlying tones of dried herbs and minerality.

Mastroberardino, “Lacrimarosa”, Aglianico, Campania 2012
This vibrant and delicious offering comes from one of the premier producers of Southern Italy's Campania region, Mastroberardino. Lacrimarosa gets its hints of spiciness from the Aglianico grape, which makes a great base for this rosato, striking a nice balance between refreshment and depth of flavor.
