If you closed your eyes and smelled this wine you might guess it to be a sauvignon blanc, due to the intense tropical fruit aromas. But this wine is 55% malbec, 35% syrah, and 10% petit verdot — varietals much more associated with deep, dark, rich wines than a dry, acidic and tropical rosé.
The nose is dominated by deep peach, grapefruit, pomegranate and floral aromas. The palate also offers plenty of peach, along with green apple, lime and mineral flavors. The acidity is sufficient, although a touch more would have made it even better. It finishes with a tart apple and pomegranate flavor. This is a cool wine.
