Have you noticed lately I am on a rosé kick? It seems to be my theme this summer. Typically I am a red wine drinker and for me the beauty of rosés are that I get to have the taste of the red grapes that I love, but in a much lighter form - - and of course, just as pretty. Yup, I am still drawn to the color pink.
Cavu Cellars Barbera Rosé - 2011 is an aromatic wine with notes of orange blossom and Satsuma plums (no, not Mirabelle or Damask plums, just Satsuma plums ... ). Flavors of strawberry hit the palate and later in the finish more stone fruit. The fruit sourced for this wine is from the Alder Ridge Vineyards at Horse Heaven Hills - with the hot summer days and cool evenings on the Columbia River, it brings to the wine the perfect amount of acids which make for a great food wine and of course, perfect for just relaxing and sipping.
Chill and enjoy it now or hide it and bring it out for Thanksgiving. Just don't forget it. (and Joel only produced about 157 cases ... )
