At 14.2 percent alcohol, Fritz's 2012 Estate Rosé ($20) initially stunned our taste buds with its sharp, alcohol-forward flavor. However, it finishes smooth and sweet, like cantaloupe and watermelon. A blend of Zinfandel, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a slight oaky flavor. This thirst-quencher would pair well with picnic fare.
