Quick Pour: Rappahannock Cellars Rosé‎ (Second Release) 2012

Producer: Rappahannock Cellars
Region: Northern Virginia, Virginia
Price: $21.50
Vintage: 2012
Varietals: Rosé‎ (Second Release) with a blend of 49.5% Cabernet Franc, 27.5% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon

Virginia Pour House Notes: 
The winemaker’s gift of a little more time in fermentation gives this Rose the ability to shed some of that stereotypical fruit forward strawberry character and dry out a bit to add a  more tannin and zest with subtle aromas of strawberry and fresh cut wood. The palate is caressed with smooth balanced strawberry, watermelon, and a touch of spice. The effervescent and tingly finish show more tannin structure and proves to be drier than the earlier release providing better balance overall.
