Erie Shore Vineyard 2004 Summer Sun Cabernet Rose
This wine came as quite a surprise – we chilled it right down, as you should with any good rose, popped the cork, poured and … nothing. Faint smell of sweetness and very little taste - the long faces of everyone involved showed their disappointment. Then it was suggested we move on and try it after it warms a bit and voila - what a difference 20 minutes makes! Vibrant citrus nose with pronounced lime, while on the palate it delivered fresh grapefruit with a dusting of sugar. Moral of the story: chill but not too much. Refreshingly summerish. Forget the lemonade – sit on the patio, pop the cork, and enjoy the Summer Sun.
