Wine Review: 2010 Bugay Vineyards Long Stem Rose

Happy Hour: 2010 Bugay Vineyards Long Stem Rosé

It was winemaker Randall Watkins's goofy pink outfit that first attracted me to the Bugay booth at yesterday's Pink Out! wine event, but it was his rosé that left me lingering. The first thing to notice about the winery's 2010 Long Stem Rosé is its shockingly deep blush hue, a result of its Sonoma County grape composition — 99 percent Syrah, with just a drop of Mourvedre. Raise the glass to your nose, and you'll detect a wildly aromatic bouquet that conjures up images of a Summer fruit basket full of berries and stone fruits. One sip reveals an explosion of strawberry flavor and a bracing acidity that'll leave your salivary glands watering for more. At $22, the wine's an affordable pick for a Spring and Summer rosé that's not just approachable, but balanced enough to enjoy all on its own. What's your favorite pink wine?
