2009 Marryvale Starmont Rosé
I couldn't find any tech data on this specific wine on the winery website, however I do know it's a rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon because it says so on the front label.
On the nose this wine is actually quite aromatic and displays lovely aromas of red raspberry, cranberry with orange peel, and subtle hints of crushed stone. It's a lively and fresh smelling summer wine!
On the palate the wine is actually quite a bit more round and textured than I had expected. It's very mouth coating and actually quite full flavored. It has some red raspberry and cranberry notes to it, but the dominant characteristic of this wine is definitely citrus peel. The alcohol is a bit out of whack on the finish, which would be my only complaint with the wine. It's really quite honestly a red wine drinkers style of rosé, because it has big flavor and big alcohol. 86 points
