2010 Charles and Charles Rose

It seems like we've had this before, but I see no review of it on this blog...I think it was a Ravinia pick. This one ran me eleven bones.

Strawberry jam on the nose.

A bit spicy...nice acidic backbone, tart cherry, raspberry, and peach tea...a very nice balance with fruit and spice blending together.

A peach tea sorta thing, perhaps even a fuzzy navel quality.

I've found straight up Syrah rose to be iffy....this one works nicely. For a hot weather quaffer, this works.

Score: 87

Where were you able to find this wine in Chicago? This is my mother's favorite and I wanted to get her a case (or a few bottles) for Mother's Day this year?

I am 99% sure I bought it at Whole Foods and I'm pretty sure I saw it there recently. I'd give the closest one to you a call.
