A Little Black Dress Rosé for Mother’s Day

Little Black Dress Rosé

Are you looking for a wine for Mother’s Day or maybe a yummy wine to enjoy during the warm summery months? You will want to consider the LBD Rosé from Little Black Dress Wines.  Many people enjoy a light weight type of wine during warmer days and a light wine is wonderful to pair with salads and appetizers or just to enjoy as an aperitif.

Last night we enjoyed a glass of the LBD Rosé which had been sent to us as a sample. The Rosé  was a blend of Zinfandel and Petite Syrah. The wine was 12% alcohol with a residual sugar of 7 g/L. The color of the wine was a delightful salmon color with a pink hue. The aroma was lightly fragrant with red berry fruits such as strawberries and raspberries. The taste, while having a hint of sweetness, was crisp with notes of chalky mineral, raspberries and strawberries. There were significant strawberry notes on the aftertaste which was very dry. 

Pairing suggestions include light summer dishes such as salads, fish, grilled meats and fresh cheese. The LBD Rosé is also a lovely wine for use as a 3P wine – good for the patio, porch or poolside.

LBD Rosé retails for $11.99. The wine was produced in Mendocino County, California by winemaker Margaret Leonardi. In addition to the Rosé, LBD Wines also produces Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Diva Red, Merlot, Moscato, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir.

Our wine sample came with a recipe for a spritzer.

LBD Spritzer


4 oz. LBD Rosé
1/2 oz of lychee liqueur
1/2 oz of Pama liqueur (or POM juice)
2 dashes of rhubarb bitters
Dash of Strawberry Rhubarb soda or Club soda


Fill a wine glass with ice. Combine LBD Rosé, lychee liqueur, Pama liqueur, and rhubarb bitters. Top with strawberry rhubarb soda or club soda. Garnish with fresh cut strawberries and wheels of lime and a fresh sprig of rosemary.

It is important to know that LBD Wines supports the causes of women around the world. Some of the organizations LBD supports include: Dress for Success Worldwide, Susan G. Komen, Keep a Breast and Fatigues to Fabulous. 

Look for LBD wines at your local wine shop and consider the LBD Rosé for Mother’s Day or for enjoying this summer!
