GRAPE: Cabernet Franc (50%), Grolleau (20%), Syrah (20%), Grenache (10%)
This eager to please pink sparkler draws on the charms of four unlikely companions in its unique blend of Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Grenache, and Syrah. Thankfully, all the strangers behave and this cherry-hued refresher provides just enough fruity bubbles to cut through salty salmon roe canapés or fresh fruit bites. This isn't bone-dry, so don't be afraid to crack one open after a meal too.
