Nine bucks and a reputable producer sounded like a safe bet to go with some Indian food.
No nose to speak of.
Dry tart cherry, some subtle spicy notes – cinnamon mostly – as the wine sees some air some strawberry creeps forward.
Not much finishing other than some lingering tannins.
I like roses – in fact, I could drink them daily if they'd let me - but every so often you grab a random crappy one....this isn't terrible, but it's not enjoyable...for a few bucks less you can get something significantly better.
