2012 Arnot-Roberts Rose

2012 Arnot–Roberts Rose – Tasting Note

Flavors – There were loads of stone fruit flavors like peach and apricot as well as strawberry and even a little raw almond on the finish.

Nose – Sweaty.  I had a difficult time pin-pointing what it was that was so intriguing about the nose of the wine, but for some reason, sweat kept popping into my mind, so I’m just going to go with it.  Let’s just attribute it to complexity.

Price – $25

Palate and overall impression – This rose was extremely well balanced and simply put, wonderful to drink.  The flavors were expansive on the palate and the mouth-feel had a deceptive richness combined with lift and freshness.  One of the most interesting roses I’ve ever had.  Fresh, enticing and very complex and worth every penny.  At $25 this was definitely on the higher side of the price point spectrum for me with rose, but well worth the experience.

Grilled salmon, sauteed spinach and braised radishes to go with our wine (cooked by me of course)

A little better look at the oh so pretty color of the wine.
