For some folks, rosé season is a-fleeting. For others, any time of year (especially Thanksgiving) is just fine. The 2014 Villa Cailleteau Bergeron Bordeaux Rosé ($13) is one of those pink wines for all seasons. Picked at perfect ripeness, the grapes boast classic red-berry flavors with a hint of herb. The nose is floral and fresh, the mouthfeel clean and focused, the finish surprisingly rich. Besides being a great patio or picnic wine, this is well-suited to most anything off the grill, especially fish and fowl, and of course down the road, for turkey and all the trimmings.
