What I like about wine:

Through wine, I am able to expand my horizons—wine, at least for me, is a window to the rest of the world beyond my own. Although I may never get to see the Italian countryside, I can curl up with a good book and a glass of wine and taste its splendor.

I bought this for my one month wedding "anniversary" celebration with my husband, and it didn't disappoint. The description of its aromas and flavors is very accurate...you wouldn't think rose petals could possibly taste good, but they do in this wine! It's fruity and fun, and my husband (who is a beer drinker and generally doesn't like wine) said this was the best wine he'd tasted so far. I suppose it's technically a cocktail or dessert wine, but I sipped this one all the way from salad to dessert and it complemented everything in a different way. I think that this will be our anniversary wine for many years to come!

La Vieille Ferme Rose is made from Cinsault (50%), Grenache (40%), and Syrah (10%) grapes. It is a medium-bodied wine that is light red in color, and gives off aromas of red berry (strawberry, cranberry, etc.), grape, and a slightly earthy scent. It has very little sweetness or tannins and is moderate in terms of fruit and acidity. At the onset, acidity overwhelms with this one, but slowly fades away and balances out as fruit flavors appear. In the 30-45 second time frame, harmony is reached as the flavors and acidity balance further, and from 45 seconds onward, this balance continues as the flavors gently reside. All in all, this rose is a dry, delicate wine that is pleasant but nothing to write home about. It would be great with appetizers, or as a good compromise to offer a divided group of red and white wine lovers.

I paid around $7-8 for this bottle from World Market. It was pale yellow in color, and gave off delicate aromas of flowers and citrus fruit. On the palate, it had nice acidity (not overwhelming), and was bursting with graprefruit and white peach. This medium-bodied white wine had a great balance between acidity and sweetness, with just enough of both. Decent length and good harmony of flavors. All in all, this is a white worth noticing. It had great flavor and value for the price.
