Parallele 45 Rosé 2011 PDF Print E-mail

Côtes du Rhône, France


Paul Jaboulet Aine's Parallele 45 rosé comes from the Côtes du Rhône in France, just two kilometers from the forty-fifth north parallel. Consisting of fifty percent grenache, forty percent cinsault and ten percent syrah, this wine resembles the Domaine de Nizas in style and flavor. The Parallele 45 is very light in color. Ripe berries are very recognizable on the nose and the palate. A certain tartness is detected, almost like pomegranate or cranberry. A slightly dry, smooth finish makes this another easy-drinking wine. Parallele 45 would pair well with many things, but I most prefer it with spicy Thai food. Regardless of the pairing, this is another Côtes du Rhône rosé winner and is priced around $13.

Dry Creek Valley, California


Founder Giovanni Pedroncelli first purchased land in 1927 but didn't start producing rosés until 1951 and the Zinfandel Rosé in 1954. Pedroncelli was among the first Sonoma County vintners to advertise the region on his winery’s label. The winery makes several varietals, and if the dry rosé of zinfandel is any indication of the quality of their other wines, I would recommend checking out their other offerings. Plum was the first thing I noticed on the palate, with berry notes. The zin adds nice body and a taste of lush fruit. The saignee method is employed to make the zinfandel rosé, common for some of the heavier varietals. It finishes with a really nice acidic taste. I recommend this with anything on the grill. This wine even stands up to beef without overpowering a chicken breast or hot dog. At around $10, this is a great value!

Napa Valley, California


Yes, please! One hundred percent cabernet sauvignon grapes sourced from Atlas Peak, Rutherford, Wooden Valley and Howell Mountain compose this wine, that, in my opinion, sets the bar for cab rosés. This wine is produced at the Michael Mondavi estate by Rob Mondavi, Jr. The winery started very small, producing just a few cases. Soaring demand has led to greater production but with no drop in quality. I’M Deep rosé is very dark in color due to prolonged skin contact and is a bit on the dry side, with red fruit on the nose. I didn't get as much strawberry as some of the tasting notes would suggest, instead finding more raspberry and cranberry notes in the front palate with the perfect amount of acidity. This wine would pair especially well with salmon or any other fish with a little higher oil content. I’M Deep is another reasonable rosé, retailing for about $13.

Willamette Valley, Oregon


Elk Cove pinot noir rosé is a treasure. Willamette Valley is renowned for producing high-quality pinot noir and pinot gris, and this rosé hits the mark. Pinot noir is one of my favorite varietals for rosé, typically nice and light with lovely strawberry notes, and this is no different. It’s very crisp, bright and very light in color. Another family-owned and -operated winery, the owner’s son, Adam Godlee, grew up in the vineyard and has been the vintner for over fifteen years. With fewer than 2,000 cases produced, Elk Cove pinot noir rosé is still handcrafted, but accessible to all. I love this wine and will be buying it for my summer patio endeavors. It is very easy to drink and would pair well with just about anything—I plan to try it with grilled scallops or crab cakes.
