Think Pink Part Deux: Wine of the Week

Sorry for the lack of creativity in this week's post as we yet again discuss some pink wine. I have been tasting oodles of the stuff lately as I have been consulting on a restaurant wine list in downtown DC. So here come two more you might want to try:

2004 Trevor Jones Cebo Rosé, Barossa Valley, Australia. This ain't your Mom's White Zin--an intoxicating blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Muscat de Frontignac. Deep crimson red color with luscious aromas of fresh raspberries, spice and cherry,
medium body, and a crisp finish. An ideal match for lamb, pork or amazing on its own.
Average Retail: $15

2004 Neakeas Vega Sindoa Rose, Navarra, Spain. Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha. Intense aromas of ripe strawberries and cherries, spice and raspberries on the palate, crisp finish. Ideal with oily fish such as salmon, as well as simply prepared veal, pork and chicken. Average Retail: $8
