Everyone Needs a Cousin Oscar!!!


This might be the ideal wine for the transition from summer to fall.  It is a touch more serious than most rosé but is still quaffable, only 11.5% ABV, and refreshing.  It showed best after one hour of air so I would dump the bottle into a decanter or carafe.  It was our favorite of the three wines we were tasting.  Enough so that Jenn would purchase a case.  This wine was purchased at Chambers Street Wines where there are still two bottles still available as of this morning.

2012 Domaine Rimbert, Cousin Oliver, Vin de Table – $12
Imported by Jenny and Francois Selections.  This wine is 100% young-vine Cinsault.  Alcohol 11.5%.  The nose revealed grapey berries.  In the mouth there was grapey, red fruit which became gentle, powdery fresh raspberry and cherry.  There was a very gentle structure which reflected in some firmness towards the middle.  This was a light wine but still confident.  It takes an hour of air to be fully expressive but it is still a wine to drink now.  It finally showed dark fruits and a little racy aspect.  ** Now.
