Who: Coly Den Haan, co-owner and sommelier of a wine bar and restaurant, The Must, in downtown Los Angeles

What: 2013 La Clarine Farm Rosé Sierra Foothills

Why: “La Clarine is one of my favorite rosés, and is made with such care and creativity, it’s hard to believe the price. A blend of Syrah and Mourvèdre grown in the Sierra Foothills, this wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined, giving it a complex texture and a watermelon cloud mouthfeel. Don’t let the murky pinkness fool you, this rosé is elegant, bright and unique.”
