2018 Chateau Ste. Michelle Rose

February 8, 2019 - Norman Bentley
#06-19-PIE

I just sampled a very nice bottle of Rose just in time for Valentine's Day! The 2018 Columbia Valley Rose is 98% Syrah, and not only a good wine for Cupid, but also quite a good food wine. We enjoyed ours with a thick pork loin chop grilled to perfection, sided by a fresh avocado and tomato salad, topped with blue cheese crumbles. As a matter of fact, if you added a slice of red velvet cake for dessert, I could highly recommend this for a special Valentine's dinner.

The Ste. Michelle opens with a fruity nose, and finishes with a dry and elegant style which begs for another sip. The flavors suggest strawberry, red raspberry, and a slight citrus breeze. The color is pretty and the wine is easy to drink, without being too fruity or too dry. The alcohol content is 12.5% and Norm's score is 88.

Great with a grilled chop, I bet you would enjoy this one with broiled salmon, or almost any chicken dish, especially chicken piccata.

score: 88

price: $11 - $15
