In Search of Rosé

I picked up this 2010 Maipe Rosé of Malbec at the Grand Tasting at Arlington Liquors for $9.99.  This comes from the Mendoza, Argentina and is produced from grapes gown at the foothills of the Andes at an altitude of 3000 feet above sea level. 

At first the color reminds me of slow gin, and looks kind of sweet, but it's a nice dry Rosé.  On the nose I find a little fruit and earth but not much.  The fruit aroma is that of cranberry and strawberry jello. 

On the palate I find strawberry, red fruit with a little hint of lime.  It's not overly fruity.  Has a lingering finish.

Not wowed yet....Still in search of......
