Basic info: Limerick Lane, Rose of Syrah, Sonoma, CA – 2016
Price estimate: $17 (local wine store)
Look: Transluscent pale salmon in color
Smell: Strawberry and peach. Very light aromas
Taste: White cherry, strawberry, peach, with a tiny citrus. Long finish, especially for a rose with mineral and peach notes.
Conclusions: Beautiful wine. Clean, fresh and and totally enjoyable.
Other notes: When we saw the rose from Limerick Lane at our local wine store, I have to admit, I got really excited. We are still saving a bottle of the zinfandel from them for a semi-special occasion but this is within the everyday drinking range, so we popped it open and it was as good as I hoped. I’m hoping the wine store has more the next time we are there.
From the bottle: No bottle notes. 12.6% alcohol by volume.
