2011 Holman Ranch Rose Of Pinot Estate Grown
Its warmed up here in the Midwest for a couple days so Rose was the choice. Wine 3 in my Holman Ranch shipment was the Rose of Pinot. Love the rose wines and for you novice wine lovers......rose is not white zinfandel. Some wonderful wines I have enjoyed from the rose family were Syrah, Cabernet, Pinot. Versatile, food friendly dry wines which love everything from burgers to spicy asian dishes.
On the nose strawberry and watermelon with hints of cherry. Cinnamon and cut roses as the wine warms. Spring time fresh fruit. Nice little nose.
Cranberry and strawberry with a nice cherry finish. The cranberry/strawberry is juicy from start to finish. Crisp little sipper with loads of ripe fruit. Nice wine your friends will enjoy!
