2010 Hidden Bench Bistro Rose

I’m not a big lover of Rose wines. This one is rose in color with a lovely nose of strawberries. On the mid pallet this wine is dominated by strawberry flavors, not quite to strawberry jam but close. It’s sweet but not too over the top. On the finish the wine has some lovely tannins. The red they use for this Rose is pinot noir and it does a nice job of adding some nice complexity to this rose. We paired it with pizza and it went well with it. I would give it an 88-89. Very easy drinking. Perfect for the patio season. Hidden bench have made an exclusive deal with restaurants and thus can’t sell the wine as one offs. So you need to buy 6 to get them. Only available at the winery. I seem to recall it was around $16.
