Wine geeks used to be able to wax poetic about how awfully misunderstood rosé was. Guilty by pigmentation; pithy, dry, well-made rosés were largely ignored as thirsty drinkers assumed those pink wines would taste sweet, seem poorly made, or both.
Thankfully for rosé lovers, those days are long behind us. It can now be argued that no wine is as sexy as rosé. It is easy to drink and elegant, and few wine styles can come close to matching rosé’s incredible visual appeal; from a slight kiss of pink all the way to a blood-orange deep red.
