It hasn’t taken us long to jump into the wines we purchased on our most recent CA trip. I’ll attribute this at least partially to the fact that prior to the trip I had maybe 4 bottles of Rosé and 10 bottles of white wine left in the basement. We brought home about a case of whites and Rosés and I was just too excited about new options to stop myself from diving right in. The few we brought home will be dealt with in very short order, I’m afraid! Tonight I chose the 2008 Mounts Family Winery Two Creeks Rosé. It clocked in 14.1% alcohol by volume, had a plastic cork closure, and I believe cost us around $16.
On the nose I found watermelon, strawberries and cream, strawberry, cranberry, red fruit, blueberry, spice, white pepper, and flowers. In the mouth I got strawberry, raspberry jello, cranberry, lime on the edges, and watermelon. This is a completely bone dry Rosé, as crisp as could be with nice acidity and clean crisp fruit. I could drink this wine all day on the porch on a hot summer day!
