Despite our pronounced Europhilic palates, we do from time to time find
a domestic wine that we like. A perennial favorite is, along with most
everything Steve does, Edmunds St. John Bone Jolly rosé, the rare
domestic rosé that has a low ABV and is light and refreshing, evocative
of warm summer days. However, we recently had another rosé from the US
that we liked well enough to get more of, 2019 Navarro Rosé of Pinot
Noir, which is also low in alcohol, light on the palate and refreshing
with notes of fresh strawberries and watermelon. It's not a complex
wine and won't challenge Domaine Tempier or Baudry in my affections, but
is available at a decent price and is quite satisfying.
p.s. I hear that Bedrock's "Ode to Lulu" rosé is a worthy contender,
but have yet to try any.
