Road 13 Honest John’s Rose 2017 B.C.

The more B.C. Rose I taste, the more I notice it falls into two distinct camps. Some seem to get their DNA from France and Italy. So light pink in colour and milder in flavour. Others are more robust and loaded with fruit. Road 13 is an example of that style. You’ll notice a deeper shade of pink in the bottle and glass. That intensity carries over in the taste with flavours of strawberries and cherries but it remains dry with balanced acidity. It’s easy drinking and a terrific match for any of your favourite patio dishes from appies to BBQ. I like having the variety of choices when I drink pink because variety is the “spice of life.”

Price: $16.49 (plus tax)
Available: B.C. Liquor stores
