Hah, I've got a story about a trip to Canada, a double decker bus, our first bag of weed, and more then one bottle of Red Mateus. The story goes on for about another 20 years, now I drink coffee. Good times, good times.

I always did like the wine with the Toad on the bottle though. Loved the cartoon as well "Mr. Toad Rides Again!" Classic.

    That seemed suspiciously like a plug. Moderator?

      In the past few weeks our favorite local wine shop has been pushing a variety of Rose's. We've had two from South Africa that were very nice and only about $12 - fruity with just a hint of sugar. Last week I bought a $11 Spanish rose' that went well with our baked ham, and I have on hand a $12 bottle of Provencal Rose' ( 40% Grenanche,30% Syrah,30% Cinsault) imported by Routas USA, a California outfit.. I think the most expensive bottle in our local store's collection was about $18, which was a price both the merchant and I agreed was a bit much for a Rose'.

      Years ago we used to buy an inexpensive California Grenache Rose' ( must have been at least 75% Grenache) - I haven't seen anything like it in our local stores for years. It was cheap and a bit sweet and was a great quaff cold on a hot Summer evening.

      Cheers, John

        When I was a truck driver in the 80's, I once drove to the Wild Irish Rose bottling plant to pick up a load. It was out in the middle of a field, in South Carolina, I think. Very strange place.
        In high school, in the late 60's, I thought I was quite sophisticated when I latched onto a bottle of Mateus.

            Lee, you need to try some of the roses from Italy, France and Spain. They are mostly dry and fantastic with a broad range of food. In fact, the other night I made a screamin' hot Thai curry and the pink wine was perfect with it.

              Over the summer we enjoyed a few bottles of Pedroncelli Zinfandel Rosé and Domaine Jean Bousquet Rose. The Pedroncelli was a little on the sweet side, the Domaine Jean Bousquet not so much. Neither came close to being as syrupy sweet as the bargain-shelf white zin most folks think of when they think of pink wine.

                  That stuff called "white Zinfandel" has no relationship to "Rose'" - it is atrocious stuff that gives a bad name to both Zinfandel and Rose'.

                      No way! Did they think about the name before they put it on the store?

                        I second that emotion. I like red zin, but white is just as you put, atrocious.

                        I haven't tried rose in quite a while, I usually stick to dry reds or whites, I'll take some of the suggestions here to the liquor store tomorrow and see what I can find.

                          Chateau St. Michelle has a "Dry Rose" that I tried on a whim and ended up really likeing. Many Rose's suffer (to me) from being overly sweet. They range from sweet to semi-sweet. This Dry Rose isn't truely dry, it still holds a pleasant slight sweetness to it, but far less that some of the other Rose's out there.

                          http://www.ste-michelle.com/wines/columbia_valley/nellies_garden_dry_rose.cfm

                          I believe it's in the $12-15 zone and it's well worth a try for something a littly different in the Rose world.
