Staff Pick Notes

It's my favorite time of the wine year! Rosé season! Channing Daughters is back on our shelves, too! They often have many choices of rosé, but the Cabernet Franc Rosato stands out for the value. Winemaker Christopher Tracy is Long Island's top wine producer. No one else produces as wide a range of cuvées of such high quality. Everything they do (and they do a lot) is refined, balanced, and delicious.

There's enough acidity here to open this beauty with summer fare such as seafood, salads, and lighter meats.
