Staff Pick Notes

Rosés are often judged by their color. Ones with darker color are believed to taste like fruit punch and the paler stuff, light and dry. These assumptions will limit your field of vision and you’ll miss all the good pink wines out there. L’Audacieuse has a brilliant, pale-salmon color, but it is in no way dainty.

These notes may make you think its sweet, but it’s dry, and, in fact, a bit tart. This wine is a far cry from any rosé archetypes, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it will produce. Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...
