A lovely strawberry in color, this one caught my eye in the store. At 3 g/l in residual sugar it’s up my alley. We had pizza on the menu tonight, lazy, so a perfect Rose night! A mild nose greets you, but it’s about all that’s mild. On the mid palate the wine displays lots of light red berries, quite a melange of flavors. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins and acidity. This is a surprisingly complex Rose, but when you see the details from the winery’s web site (42% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec, 4% Syrah, 3% Tempranillo, 1% Graciano ) you can see why! I would give it an -88, and a perfect pizza wine. I’ll probably go back and grab a few while they are still around.

Simi has been making wine since 1876 and historically blends this rosé by drawing on a palette of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec, with splashes of Syrah, Zinfandel and others in support. The 2018 is bursting with juicy suggestions of ripe watermelon, strawberry and citrus and will pair well with grilled chicken, charcuterie, pork loin or pizza. (Vintages panel, June 2019)Read More
