2012 Passaggio Rose' "Rose Colored Glasses" Napa Valley

Rose' a versatile wine not just for warm days but anytime. Tonight's wine from Cynthia Cosco winemaker/owner of Passaggio Wines was her 2012 Rose' from the beautiful Napa Valley . Created from 65% Carneros Merlot and 35% Napa Cabernet, the wine exhibits layers of fruit with a wonderful minerality on the finish. Big fan of Cindy's wines!

Ripe strawberry with fresh pomegranate treat the nose. Swirl some more the juice releases raspberry and cherry with a hint of fresh tea. Crisp and refreshing....time for a taste.

Love how the flavors flow naturally on the tongue and mouth. Strawberry and cherry followed by sun tea with a spritz of pomegranate. Hints of cranberry the more I sip. The finish is long and juicy with mineral notes. Complex and so refreshing! Well done Cindy!
