I just don't like rose.

I've tried, but outside of a champagne, I have yet to have a rose and not start thinking that I would rather be having either a white or a red.

Just don't get it.

"AND THE WHOLE CONGREGATION SAYS AMEN"

tried it. wanted to like it. didn't. tried it again, low expectations, wanted to like it - didn't - after four or five bottle, I have given up. Despite having served it to guests regularly during the summer (including last weekend) I still don't get it. Give me a nice crisp cold pale ale before a Rose.

Agreed. Maybe it's because my palate isn't sophisticated enough (which is what some will undoubtedly assert), but I just don't dig it all that much. Even when it's hot out, I'd rather have a white or a beer.


Cheers!

I can understand for someone who does not like white wine to not like rose, but can't understand how someone who likes whites doesn't like rose. There are a lot of not so good rose in the market that make it difficult. It wasn't until started drinking rose from provence that I started liking them. Still don't care for tavel or the other nearby rose areas. Provence rose tend to be light, crisp, & have clean finish with some flavor from the syrah.

I like rosé but only in the summer on a hot hot day on a patio over looking the mediterranean sea.

Yes, my wife and I have stopped trying with Rose. We had it from several varietals and would have preferred a good white every time.

Etude used to make a Pinot rose that was both refreshing and complex, streaking acidity and great depth of flavour.

I wonder if they still do ... ?

Maybe instead of a rosé some of you will enjoy a nice white zin or white merlot. I hear that Woodbridge makes a few "good ones." LOL! Big Grin -mJ

I find it delicous on Summer evenings, even wihtout sea view. I especially like the Rosés from Corsica, those are real concentrated wines.

Rose is a great "cocktail" wine. Napa cab doesnt cut it when its 88 degrees outside and you feel like vegin' on the patio. I would most likely reach for a french grenache dry rose before a white in this situation.

I am not into Rose at all and that is with trying very good one lately including Kosta Brownes the last 2 months. Hated them. Tasted like watered down vodka and cranberry. Light and hot. Confused Bad combo - unless you're a chick. Smile

You can have em'

There are others that aren't so high octane as the KB's, but I'll take a lighter bodied red over it.

Plenty of good pure whites and even sparklers to keep me happy.

Iv'e had some rose in my time. I was in Tavel in 2003 during a Cdp trip and wasn't really wowed by the wines which were bone dry and made by Grenache and Syrah I'm assuming. It might be something psychological about drinking chilled pink wine that is a turnoff.

I've never had a "profound" wine moment with a rose but it's fine for a summer sipper.

Well, if you like white wines and if you also like red wines, how can you not like Rosés? Cool

I hate grapefruit juice.
One S-B I recently that was very enjoyable was the Kathryn Kennedy S-B. I would recommend this whole heartedly. Very nice, indeed.

Who would? In Florida we sell the stuff off to get rid of the putrid juice to those who don't know how bad it is!!

Regarding rose...I didn't like rose until I had Pinot rose...now...I've found a nice summer quaffer. I really enjoy the J.K. Carriere version..but all yous people would hate it..so don't even consider it Wink

HATED the KB rose. What came to mind was "who poured grain alcohol into my strawberry Kool-aid???"
