Alta Vista Malbec 2013, Mendoza, Argentina: Terrific value for the taste and quality! The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Aromas of black fruit and toasty oak. Needs steak. Drink: 2015-2019. 677443 15% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100. March 19, 2016 Heavenly Hamburger Wine Full Review
Perrin & Fils Réserve Rosé 2005, Côtes Du Rhône A.C., France: Fragrant and pretty nose with aromas of wild field berries and flowers. On the palate, medium-bodied, dry and refreshing. Very balanced and clean. The producers of this dry French rosé also make the famous Rhone red wine Chateau de Beaucastel. Serve with fresh seafood.

Kim Crawford Pansy! Rosé 2015, Hawkes Bay, North Island, New Zealand: Don't let the brilliant strawberry hue of this rosé fool you: this wine is bone dry and bursting with refreshment. Aromas of tiny flavour-packed field berries and a lick of orange zest on the finish. Perfect as a chilled aperitif or pair it with seafood, shellfish, salads and more rosé, of course. Highly recommended. Drink: 2015-2017. 650325 13% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 90/100. August 4, 2016 Best Value Rosé Wine. Sensational Shellfish Wine Full Review
