Cibonne Côtes de Provence Rosé Tentations 2015

As the necogiant label of the historic Clos Cibonne, it is crafted with fruit from the estate and neighboring vineyards to offer a classic example of Provençal rosé at a very competitive price. This new release is an excellent introduction to the region and a great example of why this style of rose is one of, if not the most, popular each year.  

Delicate and discreet, the nose hints at subtle stone fruit highlighted by Provencal herbs.  The palate is supple and round, with a touch of exotic fruit and a lengthy finish invigorated by fresh acidity.  An ideal aperitif and summer drinker.

Ostatu Rosado of Tempranillo & Garnacha, Rioja Alavesa 2015

The Sáenz de Samaniego family have been perfecting their craft since the 1700s, and although they are dedicated to preserving ancient regional traditions, they also rely on modern winemaking techniques to produce pristine, articulate wines. If want to drink a wine that captures the history, romance, and allure of Old World winemaking, Ostatu has all of this in quantity.

The lingering finish and unforgettable taste will stay with you and tempt you to keep a bottle on hand year round.
