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.
