It’s Rosé season, and what better way to kick it off than with Charles and Charles Rosé?
In 2008, Food & Wine Magazine’s 2009 Winemaker of the Year Charles Smith (K Vintners, Charles Smith Wines) and Charles Bieler (Three Thieves, BIELER Pere et Fils, Sombra Mezcal) collaborated to form Charles and Charles wines. The label is an abstract play on the American flag designed the historic Nashville, TN poster shop, Hatch Show Print.
The 2013 Rosé is a gorgeous and vibrant pink color with streaks of salmon and fushia edges. Wild strawberry and watermelon aromas are interwoven with Herbs de Provence, citrus and mineral notes. These same flavors carry through to the palate where they intensify with a surprisingly broad and plush mouth feel that concludes with snappy acidity.
Now that we think of it, we’re pretty sure you can enjoy Rosé all year round…
