Rose 2009

I was riffling through my wines today and spotted that I had left a few bottles of pink wine undrunk from the summer stash – time to get cracking!

Villa Wolf, Pfalz, Pinot Noir, Rose 2009 The aromatics are muted in the nose yet in the mouth there is a sense of strawberries and cherries with a touch of earthiness and a very light body. Qualitatswein bottled under a screw-cap closure 12.5% purchased for $10.99 at Bottle Barn Villa Wolf

Cline, Contra Costa County, Mourvedre, Rose 2009 This rose is more effusive with red fruit flavors, with a fatter, richer feel in the mouth. The plumpness and touch of residual sugar makes it easy to drink on its own, before the appetizers are served. So open those summer bottles if you have any left!

Grown by Cline and produced and bottled in Sonoma 13% purchased at the winery this summer and I don’t remember how much that I paid Cline Cellars
