Pink! Goats! Pink Goats!

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from the PR folks for Wines of Chile.

Egads, goats! A Rosé sounded like the perfect wine the other night…as it has for about the last week or so and looks to stay in my good graces for the next oh….8ish months as we enter into the blisteringly humid summers the swamp called DC is famous for!  I picked the 2007 Pink Goat Rose by Tamaya to eat with our homemade quiche the other night.  The Goat clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume, had a real cork closure, is a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese, and I have no idea what it retails for, there’s no info on the internet about it!  Matt made an amazing quiche for dinner, bacon and gruyere, yum! I thought a Rosé would be a great idea to go with the eggs and I hit that pairing out of the park.  The easy drinking, dry Pink Goat went fabulously with the quiche.

On the nose I found lime, raspberry, strawberry, orange rind, candied cherry, and flowers.  In the mouth I got flavors of strawberry, cherry candy, lime, raspberries, and orange blossoms.  Overall, I found the Pink Goat to be dry and refreshing and very easy to drink.
