On the first magnificent spring day of the year, it seemed appropriate to open up one of my favorite ros├ęs (or is it a white?!) from last summer to see how it was coming along.

Cameron's wines are so complex, so fun. Something in the nose reminiscent of strawberry shortcake turns to cherry pie on the tongue, along with peaches and a bit of cinnamon. There's a whiff of something that I'd swear was limestone, except that there's no limestone in the Dundee Hills, so I'll just assume it's a relic of John Paul's mad genius manifesting in the glass. Soft, medium-length finish that leaves a smooth, mossy flavor.

I enjoyed my first bottle of this last August a little too much to remember to leave a tasting note (oops), but it seems to have improved after 9-ish months in hiding.

This one was the exception that proves the rule, just blowing away any other experience I've had with the grape.
