I rarely pour out wine, even if there is a problem. Basically, for me, part of loving wine is also understanding what happens to wine as it ages. That is why I took a bit of a flyer on this one. Most people would likely agree that the vast majority of rosé wines should be consumed rather soon after it is released. When I bought this wine, it was already well past what most would consider optimal. Nonetheless, I took the plunge. I have to say (and I think my wife, who is much less tolerant of wines that are less than flawless than am I, would agree), this wine was rather good. Sure, the fruit was a little disjointed up front, and there were some balance issues as a result, but all-in-all, this was a fairly good match for my spicy fish tacos. I imagine this was due, at least in part, from the fact that the Dare Rosé is mostly cabernet sauvignon, which can hold up rather well over time. 86 points (would likely be a heck of a lot higher if I had this close to release).
