“California is the only state in the union where you can fall asleep under a rose bush in full bloom and freeze to death.” — W. C. Fields

Well, if you’re going to be sleeping outdoors, California is the place to be. Hang out with the Wine Harlots, we’ll keep you warm on those chilly nights, we promise. Domaine Chandon California Rosé is a great union of chardonnay and pinot noir. The color is an intense Schiaparelli pink with flavors of fresh strawberries and cherry. The perfect pairing is Crab, Red Pepper & Grilled Corn Salad with Creamy Lime & Avocado Dressing.

The music match is “Cold Roses” from Ryan Adams & The Cardinals album Cold Roses. Take it from the Cardinals and the Wine Harlots, warm up with cold rosés. Sleeping off rosés under rose bushes, optional.

The details: 13% alcohol. Appellation: California. Varietal: chardonnay with pinot noir. Suggested retail $22 USD. Actual retails runs $15-20 depending on your jurisdiction. This was a media sample kindly provided by the winery.
