This Napa rosé proves that dark rose wine doesn’t have to be sweet and raw
The rise of rosÃ© over the past decade has led the drinking public to look above all for one quality in its rosÃ© wines: the pale color. As Provence rosÃ©s have become more and more ubiquitous on American shelves, many drinkers have come to understand the ultralight hues of these French wines as a marker of their quality.
It is true that the depth of color of a rosÃ© often corresponds to the style of the wine. These pale ProvenÃ§al creations are typically dry and delicate, unlike the soft, magenta rosÃ©s of yore like Sutter Home White Zinfandel.
