This wine, 2013 Reserve de la Saurine, should be labeled summer's best buy. The wine is from the Gard region of southern France and is 100% Grenache. The taste is pure strawberries with a bit of red raspberry thrown in for good measure. It has a bone dry mouth feel that is both refreshing and satisfying. There's a bit of length to the finish. This is the wine in the glass with the Asiago bread sticks below this post. It was also perfect with a spatchcocked chicken from the grill and some rice.
Best of all was the price - a mere $7.99. Not the greatest rose' but when one is paying $8 it is definitely a best buy.
