Some 50 years ago my mother would take me when she made her social and check in calls on the widows that lived in the neighborhood. I remember that all of their houses’ smelled of sachet, potpourri, orange peels, earl gray tea, and vanilla extract mixed in with a little mustiness. The smell and taste of this wine reminds me very much of those smells. As others have noted, a beautiful copper color. Surprisingly crisp with very little oxidation. The last time I had the wine I could not think of a food to pair with it. This time we had the wine with chicken in peanut sauce. Great match.
Light salmon color. Nose has spice, a little barnyard funk, and dustiness. The palate is spice, earth, wood, cranberry/sour cherry, and there's a slight sherry nuttiness, maybe from oxidation but maybe from the wood aging. A really complex and unique rose.
Not your everyday wine ... clearly showing some signs of oxidation with a nutty, sherry-like nose. The palate is smoothe and intriguing but clearly an oddball wine. Try this wine for the curiousity not the deliciousness.
Beautiful copper color. Voluptuous exotic nose of coconut cream with a little chocolate. On the palate this wine is rich, focused, and complex. If blind-folded I would definitely have thought it was a red wine. The flavor profile starts out with a really ripe exotic fruit flavor that I couldn't pin down and continues with blood orange, apricot, a touch of chocolate, and five or six other flavors I couldn't pin down. At the end, the intense flavors fade out really elegantly into a long finish that is light and alluring. Somehow it reminded me of the air just after it has rained in a flower garden.
