One of the wines I picked up last year in Traverse City – should be a good pairing for the roasted vegetable quesadillas I’m making for dinner tonight. This is a blend of 67% Cabernet France and 33% Merlot.
Bowers Harbor 2896 Rosé (2014) Old Mission Peninsula, Michigan – $32
Color: bright copper with a hint of orange.
Aroma: strawberry fruit, a hint of vanilla and spice.
Taste: Creamy strawberry and red currant fruit, moderate acidity, just a touch of tannin, with great balance front to back. Although a little more length on the finish would be nice. This is a food rosé, it’s absolutely dry and it has enough heft to match with a cold steak salad, roasted vegetables, or salmon.
