Carlo Rossi Rhine 2012

Member Review by wroche4:

Super easy, very light, fruit forward wine. Has flavors of fresh strawberry and raspberry. For $10 a jug, you cannot find a better table wine. Almost dangerous because it's too easy to drink. Goes down like a sorority girl.

Carlo Rossi Vineyards:
Every year the Great Central Valley of California provides harvests of uniquely delicious grapes. And while that harvest's grapes may cause a wine's style to evolve from year to year, since day one, no matter what the year, Carlo has served his wine in a sturdy glass jug.

Every year the Great Central Valley of California provides harvests of uniquely delicious grapes. And while that harvest's grapes may cause a wine's style to evolve from year to year, since day one, no matter what the year, Carlo has served his wine in a sturdy glass jug. You may wonder: Why a jug? Some people think it goes back to the 1930s and the origins of commercial winemaking in California, when people would gather for a grape stomp and carry the fresh juice home. Others think it's all about the convenience of the ring, the simple loop that makes it easy to carry, pour and share your favorite wine. It may be a little bit of both, but we like to think it's just another way Carlo made his wines stand out from the crowd. Today, Carlo Rossi serves up 12 wines in its now iconic jug that continue to be sensibly priced and easy to enjoy with family and friends. Read less

    Surprise, surprise! this light ruby-colored wine is off-dry, with surprisingly good fruit, an agreeable cherry, Beaujolais-like nose, light to medium body and a clean finish without excessive quantities of cloying residual sugar. There is vibrancy and liveliness to this "Burgundy". This wine offers considerable value, but purchasers are advised to serve it in more handsome carafes than its original packaging.

    With Bing cherry flavor and a firm fruit texture that recalls the skin of a ripe plum, this is built for beer-can chicken and roasted potatoes.



    <p><span style="color: #000000; font-family: arial; line-height: normal; font-size: small;">From the Carlo Rossi Reserve Collection, this Chardonnay has subtle hints of apple, pear and oak. It goes well with cheese and fruit platters.</span></p>
