I found the perfect patio sipper. I was lured in by the beautiful salmon color of Elicio’s Rose of grenache and syrah from France. Market District Wine Steward Jessica Goldbourn saw me reach for the bottle and started singing its praises. “One of my favorites!” Screw top, baby! Amazing value. So I took a bottle home and fell in love with the exhilarating aromas of Granny Smith apple, and Bosc pear. It was a feast for the senses. Lots of creamy strawberry and apple flavors in every sip. At $10.99, I was tickled pink. Pick one up to celebrate National Rose Day on Saturday.

Buy it at Mustard Seed Montrose and Highland Square, Market District Cuyahoga Falls, West Point Market, North End Market Hudson.
