Paumanok Vineyards 2010 Dry Rosé

I got real behind on the blog recently and now I am trying to play catch-up.  You might see some posts of wines that have sold out and for that I apologize.

This Rosé from Paumanok Vineyards sold out rather quickly.  Mid August and there is not a bottle to be had in the tasting room.  However, you might be able to find some in your local wine shop, just as I did.

I tasted this bottle of Paumanok Vineyards 2010 Dry Rosé ($18) twice, once right after it being bottled and then a few months after over a summer BBQ.  Both times this was delicious.

On the nose, strawberry dominates with hints of cantaloupe, watermelon and raspberry.  There is a herbaceousness with a cut of rocky minerality.

The taste brought more strawberry with hits of red apple and more melon flavors with a delicious grapefruit citrus squirt at the back-end of the palate.  There was a hint of spice and a touch of tannins.

The wine showed delicious bright acidity that was mouth-watering.  The finish brought some dried strawberry and fresh herbs.  There was a touch of heat, but that was due to the hot 2010 vintage.

If you find this in your wine shop make sure to pick up a bottle or two to carry you through Labor Day.

Sláinte!
