Saint Aix AIX Rosé 2016

Have you ever heard of Seattle Seafair? It's traditionally the first weekend of August and one of my favorite weekends of the year. Everyone is out on the water, there are hydroplane races on the lake, and the city comes alive. To kick off the weekend, my friend Charlie took us out on the Downtown Sailing Series. There was nothing I'd rather bring to sip on than a bottle of rose.  

This AIX Rose is from the Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence in France. How would I describe this rose? Light and very smooth, not very acidic. Fruity but not tarte.

In short: The perfect midsummer night rose.
