2016 Toad Hollow Dry Rose
February 17, 2017 - Norman Bentley
This one is also called "Eye of the Toad", and is a dry Rose made from 100% Pinot Noir. This is a wine which we have enjoyed in the past, and knew that it would be a good choice for our Valentine's Day Celebration. A friend brought us a big platter of steamed shrimp, fresh from the Gulf of Mexico, and we added in a couple of lobster tails, for a perfect Valentine present for the both of us. Even the Chardonnay Queen raved about this seafood extravaganza paired with Rose instead of Chardonnay!
The color is a gorgeous pink with orange tinges. The nose has a fresh scent of flowers followed by watermelon and peach aromas. The flavors are a mix of stone fruit and cherries, with a little strawberry, and a trailing hint of watermelon backing up the nose. The alcohol content is 11.5% and Norm's score is 89. The wine is clean, fresh and delightful.
The "Eye of the Toad" was excellent with cold shrimp and lobster, and would pair well with a variety of summertime fair. The fresh taste reminds us that spring is just around the corner. This one is definitely a "Back Porch Sipper".
price : $12- $16
