Top 10 Rose Wines 2009

Rosés, with their pink color, are made by pressing, bleeding, or limited maceration. Only Rosé Champagnes are made by blending white and red wines. Typically served chilled, they're especially refreshing in warm weather. We've selected some of the best Rosés from Rioja and Bordeaux to the Napa and Russian River Valleys in California. Find yourself a quality pink wine with a look through these past selections.
