Review: 2008 Paul Jaboulet Parallele 45 Rose

paul-jaboulet-parallele-45-roseSummer is nigh, which means pink wine time is upon us. Frederick Wildman submits for our approval this rose from Paul Jaboulet Aine, the pink version of the producer’s popular Cotes du Rhone Parallele 45, the red version of which is a staple at every wine shop on the planet.

This rose — 50% grenache, 40% cinsault, 10% syrah, is light and simple, very mild with notes of apple and strawberry. The finish is short, and Parallele 45 Rose offers playful flower notes, too. Extremely easy-drinking, it’s both a starter wine and a fine, if unchallenging, aperitif.

B+ / $11
