A rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method.
The most important question to ask when you buy rosé: Is it DRY? And that’s what you want: a wine that’s fresh and acidic, without extra sugar to bury its mineral/fruity/whatever flavors and aromas. Remember, it was super-sweet white zinfandel and its mass-produced brethren that gave rosé a bad name to begin with. You can read more about Rosé wine here.

On May 3, Village Vino in Kensington will host its annual Spring Kermit Lynch Tasting.
Following are excerpts from an interview with Lynch, done upon the release of his book’s anniversary edition.
PeopleÂ generally look for moreÂ balanced, lower-alcohol wines that can be consumed with a meal.Â Unfortunately, a lot of Zinfandel is a meal in and of itself.Â Why no Zinfandel by the glass?Â California Zinfandel is relatively expensive compared to varietals from around the world.
