Flight 1 (5 notes)
2010 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina Rubentis
Light pink color with a bit of spritz. The nose shows raspberry and strawberry with minerals and a subtle briar essence. The palate is tart, light, good acid, strawberry, raspberry, nice. Very good sipper.
2010 Domaine Romy Beaujolais Rosé Cuvée non chaptalisée
Dmedium salmon color. Nose is also somewhat modest with watermelon, strawberry, spice. The palate is crisp and clean, nice balance, watermelon, citrus, strawberry, and some mineral, very tasty. Very nice gamay rose, price around 16.99, not to bad.
2009 Azienda Agricola Moroder Marche IGT
Nice strawberry color. Blend of 70% Montepulciano, 15% Sangiovese, and 15% Alicante. The nose is lovely with cherry, strawberry, melon, and earth. The palate is fresh and lively, bright strawberry, strawberry kool aid, nice acid and some tannins. This is very fun and very easy to enjoy.
There was a nice mix of roses from France, Italy, and Spain. The WOTN for me was the Morodor rose blend.
