Member Review by CageyT:

Not being very familiar with the world of Rose, this wine has turned my head. All I can say is Fabulous-- meanwhile, I will develop a vocabulary to talk about Rose.

Very deep in color and body for a roseacute;, featuring fresh watermelon, pomegranate and raspberry flavors. This wine has enough stuffing to pair with grilled chicken or salmon.

I have always loved the unique qualities of dry roseacute;s. This one is produced in Tavel, in the Southern Rhocirc;ne region of France. The grapes are primarily Grenache, with Mourvegrave;dre, Clairette, Picpoul and Syrah added to the blend. The beauty of a roseacute; is not only how it picks up flavors from foods, but also how certain foods will bring out the flavors in the wine. Try something spicy with this onehellip; cayenne just makes this wine come alive on your palate. Strawberry, raspberry and other fruits are nicely balanced with subtle tannins. Serve with blackened salmon or spicy jambalaya.

The main reason for liking this roseacute; is the composition of the grapes used. You have the usual suspects mdash; Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah mdash; but some Clairette and Picpoul are thrown in this cuveacute;e, giving it an interesting twist. The Picpoul at 12% adds lushness and viscosity I didnrsquo;t see in many roseacute;s. At first whiff the typical roseacute; petal and lilacs, but when tasting, a scent of freshly ground white pepper emerges that intrigues. Its taste is redolent of spicy cherry, baked custard and bursts of cinnamon. There is enough acidity to brighten up the medium finish. Goat cheese over greens, with fresh strawberries and spiced pecans.

Almost bracing, with cherry pit and watermelon rind notes taking the upper hand on tea, spice and tobacco hints. The long, juicy finish has a nice bitter cherry hint. Drink now.

A solid Tavel, with dark cherry, tobacco and hot stone notes backed by a ripe, juicy finish. Drink now.
