Bedell Rosé Blend North Fork Taste Rose 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Nothing captures the spirit of the North Fork better than a glass of Taste Rosé. Fresh and balanced, this handcrafted wine is made from a unique blend of estate grown Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The coral pink color is the result of a gentle whole-cluster pressing of grapes immediately after harvest. Fermentation was completed naturally using indigenous yeast. Aromas and flavors of wild strawberry, papaya and white peaches are surrounded by a crisp, citrus minerality. Internationally renowned artist Barbara Kruger created the label art exclusively for Bedell, suggesting the notion that Taste can influence what we love, how we live, and who we think we are.

Bedell Cellars is among the oldest and most prestigious wineries on the North Fork of Long Island, America's ascendant new wine country. A nationally recognized leader in quality, Bedell produces critically acclaimed blends called Taste, Gallery, and Musée with artist labels commissioned from Barbara Kruger, Ross Bleckner, and Chuck Close, respectively. The Corey Creek Vineyards label, also grown and produced by Bedell Cellars, is renowned for its Gewürztraminer and an exquisite Provencal Rosé. Bedell's owner, Michael Lynne, a distinguished film executive who produced The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Nightmare on Elm Street series, Hairspray and the Austin Powers films, among many others, is raising the bar for quality among Long Island wine estates. Ten years into Michael Lynne's ownership, Bedell Cellars has consolidated its status as a world-class estate. Bedell's winemaking team is led by Consulting Oenologist Pascal Marty, formerly of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Founding Winemaker Kip Bedell, Winemaker Kelly Urbanik, and industry veteran Vineyard Manager Dave Thompson. Complementing the sublime beauty of the wines themselves are nearly 100 acres of beautifully manicured vineyards and a state-of-the-art winery. Completed in 2005, it boasts custom designed open-top fermenting tanks and a gravity-driven regime to minimize pumping and filtering. The Bedell tasting room is housed in a renovated potato barn originally built in 1919. It showcases an impressive collection of contemporary art on display for the public, including works by Simon Starling, Liam Gillick, Eve Sussman and Lisa Kereszi. An outdoor grand tasting pavilion constructed of nearly 4,000 square feet of mahogany was also completed in 2005, offering visitors a sweeping view of hundreds of acres of vineyards and open farmland. Bedell's wines have been critically acclaimed worldwide by such publications as The New York Times, London Daily Telegraph, Forbes, Fortune, and O the Oprah Magazine. Bedell Musée received a 90-point rating from Wine Spectator, matching the highest score ever awarded to a red wine from the Eastern U.S. And Wine Business Monthly named Bedell one of the 'Top 10 Hottest Small Brands' in the world.

I really want to like this wine more but i can't; the nose, although interesting in some ways, is awkward with roasted vegetable stink verging on burnt rubber being the most prominent and although this doesn't follow through to the soft berry laden palette, it can feel a bit hot as the fruit wears off.

On its own the taste was not that great and after an hour I have a slight stomach ache and I only consumed about 2 ounces. Pairs better with a slightly spicy pasta dish then it did with a seasoned chicken breast.
