Rose Colored Glasses

The wine for the night was a 2007 Ceja Bella Rose. It’s a blend of Syrah and Pinot Noir, has a real cork closure, clocks in at 12.7% alcohol by volume, and I purchased it through WineQ for $21.99. I’ve enjoyed several of Ceja’s wines from WineQ previously, so I was very excited to see another option added. However, I will say that the price for this bottle struck me as a bit high, even though I really enjoyed the wine. I have trouble wrapping my head around an over $20 bottle of Rose.

The color on the wine was great. It almost looked dark enough to not be a Rose and it certainly wouldn’t win any palest Rose contests! On the nose I found red raspberry, flowers, strawberry, kiwi, and spice. The nose was aromatic and smelled crisp. In the mouth I found red berries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, limes, and cranberries.

Overall the wine was dry as could be (in fact, I wrote down dry in 3 different places in my notes) and had great red fruit laced with citrus flavors. This Rose was refreshing and tart, and would make a great match with my easy BBQ ribs, or just as a wine to enjoy on the porch.
