My Nose Grew

Though I suppose my post about Rose was about the last Rose of summer, I never said I wasn’t going to drink them in the fall…..not to mention it might as well still be summer here with the weather!

The bottle was a 2005 Domaine d’Eole from Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence. (Did I read that bottle right Marcus since you are our resident label expert?) I picked this up at The Winery in Old Town Alexandria for $11, it clocked in at 12.5% alcohol by volume and had a fakie cork. The wine is a blend of grenache, counoise, syrah, and mourvedre grapes.

On the nose I found cream soda, strawberry, and peach with a question mark since it kept appearing and disappearing. In the mouth there were strawberries, spice, dry roses, and lime. It was light with a slightly sour note and a dry Rose overall. Not a bad wine, but I preferred the Touraine Rose I picked up at The Winery for $9 a few weeks ago.
