With a casual restaurant lunch of potato skins with cheese, bacon, green onion and sour cream topping, I debated between a Robert Mondavi Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon and a Beringer White Zinfandel and decided to go with the less expensive white zin.
It was a pleasant quaffer. It didn't smell or taste like zinfandel (the closest fruit taste I would say would be strawberries). I can see this as a chilled quaffer on deck, patio or balcony on a hot day. It would also pair with mild cheese such as Colby or Monterey Jack.

We do have a place; it's called Rose'/Blush/All Pink Wine.

The genetic testing is still out as to what SPECIES WW is.......
White Zin taken seriously is pretty tasty and certainly has its place. So does the empty bottle, in IKs CENSORED.

Now these folks run a perfectly respectable wine board. I would strongly suggest that no matter what, you at least have the decency to keep your tongues to yourselves!

WOW is a female. Sorry I forgot about the blush, rose' wine thread. All is forgiven.

Why not move everyone to 'White Merlot"...surely there is a place...and really some of the stuff tastes better (Beringer)?

There's a place for every wine, so long as the producer has enough marketing money to put behind it. But that does not mean the wine will be worth the money.
To be sure, it is always subjective, but I would rather rose wines not be concocted and instead are produced--naturally; some are not.
