Château d'Aquéria Tavel 2015 Rosé, $12.99-$15.99, 90 points, was a beautifully brilliant orange/red.
Aromas of strawberries, hibiscus, and roses were good.
Medium to medium-plus body managed crisp acidity and rich flavors of melon, strawberry, kiwi, red cherry, and ginger notes.
Finished long on the trailing palate dominated by red cherry which gave a sense of sweetness (a bit jammy), warm spices, and a potent 14% alcohol.
Mostly Grenache with other southern Rhône Valley varietals.
Paired well with my spice Sloppy-Joe with melted American cheese.
