One of my recent purchases from up in Traverse City. You know I’m a fan of Cabernet Franc, and made it an especial point to taste everything from that grape that I could lay my hands on when I traveled north.
Color: bright berry pink – I mean bright almost to the point of cotton-candy!
Aroma: berries predominate, with a little bramble and forest floor. Smells juicy.
Taste: a nice fruity mouthful with bramble/spice notes. Just a hint of sweetness up front that rapidly gives way to complex fruit & bramble in the mid palate. A good touch of tannin and acid on the finish makes this a good food rosé.
Tasted with roasted root vegetables – parsnips, carrots, onions, purple potatoes, white beets, and sweet potatoes. Provided a nice contrast & enhancement for the earthy/salty vegetables. Would also go great with flank steak or lots of tailgate foods
$17 – Recommended!
