Just Released: 3 Rosés for a Fading Summer

Have a glass of rosé before summer comes to an end

We’re reaching the end of summer, so it’s a good time to enjoy our rosés. Here are three that are worth exploring:

The 2011 Macari North Fork of Long Island Rosé ($15) is somewhat sweet and full with peach and spice flavors and good acidity. It would go well with hors d’oeuvres and light fruit pastries.

The 2011 Laroche Languedoc Rosé de la Chevaliere ($11.50) is a full wine with light cherry flavors and a touch of creaminess, balanced by snippets of bar bitters around the edges. Its plumpness — it’s 70 percent grenache and 30 syrah — would lend itself to be poured with a roasted loin of pork.

The 2011 Saladini Pilastri "Consenso" Marche Rosato IGT ($8) is on the lighter side with mellow cherry flavors and good acidity to match turkey pastrami and brined meats.
