Goats Do Roam Rose 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright colour in the glass, with delicate aromas of red fruit and berry. The entry on the palate is slightly sweet and fruit-driven, finishing on an intense yet refreshing note. Surprisingly complex with a lingering aftertaste.

Goats roam indeed, as do flavors of strawberry, cherry, and luscious candied fruits all over the glass. The color is deep (for a rosé) but don't let that fool you: the feel is crisp and light, the finish dry and clean. Comprised of Syrah, Mourvedre, Gamay Noir and Grenache Noir, the aromas sing just like the masses of loyal soccer fans will at the World Cup in South Africa this June.

A cheerful nose of raspberry, strawberry and lemon starts this rosé blend, and like flavors follow in layers that offer substance beyond the typical rosé. The wine has a touch of sweetness and a more unctuous mouthfeel than the nose might suggest, giving it the weight to pair with more complex dishes. Overall, an affordable, elegant choice.

Smooth and easy, with cherry and strawberry notes and a round, soft finish. Drink now.

A blend of 40% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 17% Gamay and 12% Mourvedre. Watermelon-orange color. Enticing strawberry and watermelon aromas are lifted by a floral topnote and an exotic suggestion of stone fruits. Then supple, spicy and just off-dry, with a juicy quality that makes it very easy to drink. A very successful blend. Easygoing but not short.

Fresh and light, with refreshing cherry and watermelon notes backed by a slightly firm hint of cherry pit. Drink now.

Deep, bright pink. Pungent black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with subtle floral and mineral qualities adding complexity. Juicy red berry flavors pick up tangerine and anise with air, as well as a sneaky sweetness. Fleshy and round but dry, with decent finishing cling and length. Dry enough to work as an aperitif but sufficiently full-flavored to handle richer foods, or cheeses.

Has hints of wood spice and earth to go with its cherry and cola notes. A touch rustic for a rosé, but still good. Cinsault, Grenache, Carignan and others. Drink now.
