Dinner was a grilled steak last night, but not wanting a heavy wine I opted for a 2010 Chateau Guiot Rose from the Costieres de Nimes region of the southern Rhone in France. The wine is predominantly Grenache with some Syrah for depth.
Neon pink color in the glass and a nose of pure strawberries and raspberries with just a hint of peach. Bone dry, light and racy on the tongue and ending with pure fruit. This is a happy wine. It was great with the steak and it worked particularly well with some fresh basil which was tossed with several lettuces and some red onion for a salad. Good little wine.
13% alcohol and $11.
