Wine of the Week - Cellier du Rhone 2008 Rose Table Wine


I've had no previous experience with rosés, and this wine was probably not a good introduction - I didn't like it. If someone can recommend a more exemplary rosé, please let me know in the comments; I'd be interested in checking it out. Lesson learned after this week and last: distrust a wine described as "table wine." I know where to set the glass... now tell me what you really are.

The rundown on this wine: It has a rich pink appearance, with golden hues. The nose includes hints of lime. It tastes of pears and green apples, with an overtone of honey. As appealing as this may sound, I cannot recommend this wine.
