Staff Pick Notes

A Cabernet Franc rosé from Loire Valley always gets me excited. I've had this wine for the last couple vintages and this vintage definitely stands out.

This wine is produced by a collective of winemakers in the Central Loire, Réserve des Vignerons, which was founded in the 1950s. They produce solid wines at great prices and this rosé is no exception.
