Tolosa Winery Rose of Pinot Noir 2013

Member Review by EMark:

Attractive plum color in the glass. Kinda musty odors. Pretty much a "standard" PN on my palate--medium bodied, most notable flavor is cherry, although there is some kind of a minerally or slate flavor--maybe that's what people mean by pencil lead. US$28.30 at the winery in San Luis Obispo in December..

Wow. What a pleasant surprise. i can't believe this was under $20. Great sweet pomegranate and cranberry. This is a terrific QPR. Although the nose is very closed the palate certainly delivers. i'll take this over a $20 Burgundy any day of the week.

Very astringent, drying. Might go well with Lamb shank or a breaded veal, but cannot stand alone. Loved the 2005, btw, so we'll keep trying...

A medium-bodied red, wonderful during those cold winter nights...

Wine Tasting NotesThe fruit character leans towards cherry and raspberry in this medium colored Pinot Noir, with aromatic undertones of black tea, violets and cedar. The sweet fruit on the palate is soft and generous balanced by pleasant tannins, finishing with a hint of dry mint and anise. It is an innovative expression to Pinot Noir and designed to be enjoyed in its youth.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewJust delicious. It's so soft and silky, so easy to sip, and so seductive in lush cherry, cola, vanilla and spice flavors. Drink now for its youthful exuberance.Wine Tasting NotesThe color is dark ruby red without being inky or overly dense. A jammy red berry tone announces the aroma and is then backed up by many layers of complex undertones: cinnamon, tea leaf, bergamot, and fennel, with elements of vanilla and cola as well. The flavors are in harmony with the aroma this wine is not a flirt. It delivers what it promises with soft fruit opening the palate and ripe, dynamic tannins carrying through to a sweet finish.
