“Stop and smell the rosé”

“Stop and smell the roses” (or “flowers”) is an American saying that has been cited since at least the 1950s. It means to take time to relax and enjoy life.
“Stop and smell the rosé” is a wine saying that has been printed on many images. “Stop and smell the rosé” has been cited in print since at least 1987.
Wikipedia: Rosé
A rosé (from French rosé; also known as rosado in Portuguese and Spanish-speaking countries and rosato in Italy) is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale “onion-skin” orange to a vivid near-purple, depending on the varietals used and winemaking techniques.
