Looking at the world through rose-colored glasses at Elway's

Size does matter. We learned that as we sampled thirty different bottles of rose at the annual Pink Patio party at Elway's Cherry Creek last night, and decided that we still loved last year's winner, Chateau Peyrassol...which Aaron Foster was pouring from a very big bottle. But there were plenty of other winners among the thirty-plus roses on hand -- with party-goers voting for their favorites. Elway's will tally those votes and come up with a few roses to add to its summer list.

The possibilities: 2011 Muga, Spain; 2011 Bieler, France; 2011 Bonny Doon, California; 2011 Cantine Barbera, Italy; 2010 Feudi di San Gregorio, Italy; 2011 Marchesini Chiaretto, Italy; 2010 Oatley, Australia; 2010 Guigal, CDR, France; 2011 Ponzi, Oregon; 2011 Dom. De Nizas, France; 2011 Chateau Valcombe, France; 2011 Aix, France; 2011 Chateau Soucherie, France; 2011 Chateau Peyrassol; 2011 Casal Garcia, Portugal; 2011 Regaleali, Italy; 2011 Curtis, California; 2011 Cep, California; 2011 Chateau Puech-Haut, France; 2011 Guy Drew, Colorado; 2011 Frisk, California; 2011 Chateau de Campuget, France; 2010 Prieure de Montezargues, France; 2011 Whispering Angel, France; 2011 M. Chapoutier, CDR, France; 2011 Dom. de la Petite Cassagne, France; 2011 Mas Carlot, France; 2010 Dom. Sainte-Eugenie, France; 2010 Hera, Portugal; 2011 Artazuri, Spain; 2010 Daou, California.
