Rosé of the Week
2011 J Lohr Gesture Series Grenache Rosé, Paso Robles, 13.5% Alcohol, $18
Pale and perfect for a summer day, this liltingly lovely charmer is all watermelon and gummy bears. Fairly low alcohol, good acidity and easy drinking charm make this wine from happy-girl grape Grenache, a breezy beauty for poolside and patio sipping. A lovely bottle of wine you can proudly share with your book club.
This wine can be purchased on the J Lohr website at www.jlohr.com/wines/gesture/rose-2011.
