Penya Rosé 2011 (Catalanes)

20120430-144641.jpg

Straight forward blend of 60% Grenache & 40% Syrah from Catalan (France). Saignée style, rich color with very soft cherry blossom aromatics. The fruit is definitely black stone cherry with a hint of blueberry. The finish has a bit of a bite…some bitter astringency but nothing over the top. For a food pairing we think pulled pork tacos or some chorizo sausage.
