A Rose by any other name…Well, it’s finally the time of year here for lighter wines, including Roses! Excellent. I love the spring, which appears to be getting cut extremely short here this year since we were so late starting. The other night we tried the 2009 Attitude Jolivet Rose. The wine clocked in at 12% alcohol by volume, had a real cork closure, and retails for about $10.
First, I loved the color on this wine. It was almost a salmon color. On the nose I got raspberry, strawberry, and orange zest. I thought it was light, fruity, and pleasant. In the mouth I found cherry, raspberry, strawberry, and a citrus zest backbone. The wine had good acidity and I found it to be refreshing on a warm spring afternoon.
