A ros? by another name is not the same ros

slated in molehills, consumed at 9:24 am

A friend and I were trying to decide on a ros? wine for a pleasant outdoor spring meal. We had it down to two on the menu, and decided to ask the waiter to tell us/find out for us the differences between the two wines to help us choose.

a: What’s the difference between these two ros?s?

Waiter: Well, they’re both ros?s so they’re going to be really similar.

a: ….

Waiter: One comes in a half bottle, the other one comes in a full bottle (as was clearly marked on the menu). But they’re both pretty much the same wine.

a: um.. thanks.

Uh-huh. One’s from 2005. The other’s a 2007. They’re totally different brands. One’s from Australia. The other’s from Argentina. I’m no connoisseur, but…. “they’re both ros?s so they’re the same”?!? OY! Seriously, OY!!!

We went with the Crios Ros? of Malbec from Argentina.

The meal and wine were excellent (despite good-looking but disappointingly absurd waiter).

  1. You should’ve just had white wine or a sangria. Ros

  2. They didn’t have sangria.
    The ros

  3. I’m discarding them based on their taste. I’m a taste-ist, if anything.

    A good pinot grigio/gris is much tastier and refreshing. YUM! YUM, I say!

  4. You like reds and select whites in some circumstances. You’re casting out ros
