Goats do Roam 2006 Coastal Region Rosé

Lighter than any red, but darker than any other Rosé I remember.

Full smell of raspberry, red cherry.

Red cherry flavor, strawberries, and raspberry, a little bit petillant. Full-bodied.

A bit simple, but entirely enjoyable celebration of fruit. When I began drinking wine, South Africa was the source of harsh grassy Sauvignon Blancs, innocuous Chenin Blancs, and nasty Pinotages. Things have improved considerably. This is a blend of Shiraz, Pinotage, Cinsaut, Grenache, Gamay and Merlot. Everybody in the pool!

At $13.49, I feel I made a good buy. Goats do Roam (Fairview) also makes Rhone-like red and white wines which I intend to sample.
