2011 Caves D'Esclans Whispering Angel Rose France

Originally scheduled to be discussed on tastelive, the wine ran into a shipping snafu and arrived late. A blessing if you ask me because with the hot summer midwest temps, cool refreshing rose hits the spot. Whispering Angel will treat your palate.

Wonderful creamy rich vanilla on the nose with a blast of fresh strawberry followed by hints of cut roses. Continue to swirl and red raspberry appears.

The mouth is really nice with ripe strawberry and raspberry leading into a creamy vanilla finish. The vanilla is a perfect compliment to the fruit and a crisp minerality begs you to fill the glass again. Keep a bottle or 2 of this on hand, your friends will love it.
