What's Crackin'

Joe’s Sommelier Series: Rosé

You know what they say… rosé all day!  We’re welcoming summer with four uniquely different but amazing rosé wines. Stop by Joe’s May 22 – 28 to taste your way through these selections, normally only sold by the bottle.

Located in the heart of the Loire Valley, near the town of Tours, Charles Joguet is producing some of the most exciting wines in the world. A perfect example of the region’s food-friendly wine is the Charles Joguet, Chinon, France ($10 6oz / $40 per bottle). Hints of orange zest and red berries evolve into layered notes of blood orange.  A subtle richness on the palate creates a nice pairing for our Salmon Au Poivre.


Steve Matthiasson has a simple, yet effective, wine philosophy: winemaking is a natural extension of farming, and wines should respect the purity of variety and individuality of the site. The Matthiasson, Napa Valley, California ($11 6oz / $44 per bottle) reflects the regional expression of the grapes used to create this wonderful rosé. Light in color and aromatics, it is fresh and crisp, with lifted notes of red fruit and strawberry.  Try it with our Charred Octopus Salad.


One of my favorite wines comes from the windswept coast of Provence, France. The Clos Cibonne, Provence, France ($12 6oz / $48 per bottle) is a unique rosé made from the grape Tibouren. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged under flor (a style of winemaking used for production of Sherry) in 100-year-old foudres. The result is bone dry, with orange peel and herbs on the nose, followed by fresh fruit and a veil of salinity on the palate. This gem is a perfect match for our Bone-In Alaskan Halibut.


Ken and Grace Evenstad first started making world class Pinot Noir in the Dundee Hills of Oregon in 1989. Since then, they have been setting the region’s standard for premium wines. Their proprietary rose offers notes of perfectly ripe raspberry on the nose, supported by subtle red fruits on the palate. The Domaine Serene “R”, Oregon ($13 6oz / $52 per bottle) is precise and polished on the finish, making it a great aperitif to enjoy before any meal.

Wine Tip: If you can’t decide between white or red, consider rosé a suitable alternative. Typically subtle on the palate, with modest levels of acidity and tannin, it works well with a wide range of cuisines.
