Featherstone Winery & Vineyard Rosé 2010
V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
Vintages Wine Panel: This rose-petal pink rosé has a fresh and inviting nose with wonderfully complex aromas of wild strawberry, cherry, roses and mineral. Dry, medium-bodied, and acutely elegant, this is quite juicy and flavourful with a zippy acidity and a mouth-watering finish. Great as a sipper for backyard barbecues. My note: Strawberry fields forever! A lovely, summer’s day wine with ripe field berries and a gentle acidity. Works as both a refreshing aperitif and a companion to seafood and salads. Rosé food pairings: fish, grilled chicken, salads. Alcohol: 13%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2010‐2012  Best Value Rose  Price: $14.95 Score: 87/100

Ridgepoint Wines Pinot Noir Rosé 2006
V.Q.A. Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada
Vintages Wine Panel: Special care was taken with this rosé to capture the character of Pinot Noir. The grapes were hand harvested and the juice was inoculated with a special yeast designed to bring out the red fruit flavors of the variety. Loads of red cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors are backed up by a refreshing vein of acidity. My note: This rosé reminds me of Tavel. Aromas of baskets of cherries and field flowers. Ridgepoint Wines Pinot Noir Rosé food pairings: grilled pork chops with herbs. Alcohol: 12%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Price: $14.95 Score: 88/100

Rabl Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé 2008
Niederösterreich, Limited, Austria
Vintages Wine Panel: Bright salmon pink in color, this Cab rosé shows fresh and savory aromas of wild strawberries, redcurrants, ripe red pepper and citrus. It’s dry, medium-bodied with a round texture and the perfect amount of balancing acidity for the ripe red berry fruit. The medium-length, crisp finish, features some notes of pomegranate and mineral. My note: Simple and strawberry ripe. A field of flowers and berries. Run! Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé food pairings: herbed grilled salmon, grilled chicken skewers, red pepper dip, pita and hummus. Alcohol: 12%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Price: $16.95 Score: 86/100
