The lazy dog dangling days of summer are rapidly making their way out, so what better way to enjoy it than with a rosato. I found this one at Trader Joe's for $1.99 not too long ago – every so often they get a new variety from a large producer for dirt cheap – I'd expect to find this for probably closer to $8 in the store.
Just a little bit of strawberry and spice on the nose.
Bone dry and just the slightest bit tannic. Very light fruit, hard to pick out – really, the strongest flavors are stone fruit – peaches for the most part. A little bit of cherry as well.
The tannins present themselves a bit more of the finish with just a bit of lingering fruit.
For $2 this is obvious. For $8 I'd still consider it even though I'd be far less giddy about it.
