The Tavel Appelation: "Rosés from the Southern Rhône offer a marked contrast to their cousins from Provence. Typically deeper in color and fuller in body, Rhône rosés, led by the Tavel appellation, offer the stuffing to match with grilled summer fare while still keeping a refreshing personality."~James Molesworth (Wine Spectator) Winery: "Eye : bright rosé wine - ruby red colour with topaz tints. Aromas : mineral - red fruits (raspberry and cherry). Mouth : powerful – flinty – long spicy finish."

This is the original rose' appellation. In fact, so good is the fabled rose' from Tavel, that by law no other sort of wine can call itself Tavel! Layers of wild strawberries collide with a spicy note, a dash of citrusy acidity and so much fruit and flower aroma, it is almost too much. But then, when paired with foods of the region - fish soups, black olives, rosemary scented meats and poultry, anything combining eggplant and tomatoes. Rose' of the Kings, King of the Rose's.

Station Plaza WineFresh cut roses, strawberry and sea air on the nose and a slight herbal note / maybe mint maybe even basil on the pallet along with a great young vibrancy makes this one of the best roses of the season so far.
