In Search of Rosé - Shinn Estate Rosé

My summer has been kind of hectic and jumbled and I haven't had time to road trip to Long Island like I try to do at least once.  Recently a friend of mine went out to the North Fork for a few days to wine taste and I told him to stop at Shinn and pick me up their 2010 Rosé. I wanted to try it in my quest.

He did and I opened it last week.  Their 2010 Rosé didn't disappoint.  I really liked the color of this Rosé. I know it is hard to see in the picture, maybe I should have taken it indoors, but it was pink with orange undertones.  A beautiful color.

The wine had aromas of floral and stone.  The palate was full of strawberry leading to raspberries, a beautiful soft mouth feel (very elegant) and a dry finish.  As the wine warmed up a little bit there was some watermelon on the finish.

We had this wine on a Tuesday evening which is CSA pickup.  We prepared some pasta and fresh veggies to go with the wine. A very fitting meal to go with a Shinn Vineyards wine.

I really liked the wine.  I give it a thumbs up and a WO\  on the WOW meter.
