Only Rose

2004 Solo Rosa, California Rose ($15) -- From a producer that only makes Rose (get it, Solo Rosa) and in fact only makes this wine. Good fruit flavors, acidity and tannins and very dry. It is a wonderful domestic Rose. It is Sangiovese/Merlot blend (50/50) from Napa and Lodi respectively, aged five months in 2 to 4 year-old French oak barrels. Just over 2,000 cases produced.

This wine tasted great at Thanksgiving and after hiding in the fridge for two weeks it still has fruit and dryness. Way to go!

I can't imagine a world without Rose's like this!

Thank you, Jeff and Daniel.
