Wine of the Day

2012 Vina Robles Roseum Huerhuero Vineyard Paso Robles

Another excellent value from Vina Robles, this rosé of Syrah celebrates Spring with juicy, fresh fruit. The color is dark for a rosé and the aromas are shy either. Sweet strawberry, grenadine, red cherries, cherry blossom, sweet herb and vanilla rise from the glass. Persistent juiciness on the palate is matched with medium-plus body and a delicious fruit salad of crushed red berries, cherry, banana and spice. Drink now through 2015. Recommended+.
