Tasting Note: Aurora Rosé

This is from Aurora Cellars in the Leelanau Peninsula region, just west of Traverse City.  I bought this last year on one of my tasting trips, and I enjoyed it on the 4th of July with lamb kebabs. This wine is a blend of Syrah and Pinot Blanc.

Aurora Rosé (2015) Leelanau Peninsula, Michigan – $18

Color: quite dark, copper-orange more than pink.

Aroma: not much on the nose.

Taste: strawberry, then red currant.  Good balance and acidity for a food wine.

This is OK, and definitely quaffable on a hot afternoon.  It also paired well with the lamb and roasted vegetables (purple onions, orange bell peppers, and mushrooms).
