Abundance 2010 Elegante Rosé
Rosé of Carignane which is a novelty in itself. Look for over ripe strawberries in the nose. A sweet and delightful little Rosé with a dabble of tartness. Not very complex but its not trying to either. Great Rosé for wine newbies at a great price point. Solid finish as well.

Winemaker Notes: “Abundance Vineyards is proud to release our very first Rose di Carignane and continue to build on our love for this varietal. Aromas of strawberries and toasted oak flow from the glass of this bright coral colored wine. As the name implies, this is a round, rich and seductively elegant wine, well suited for a candle lit dinner for 2 special people. A very long, pleasing finish follows a rich entry of oak, strawberries, peaches, and a hint of rhubarb. Our 2009 Elegante is a delicately balanced wine which will enhance the flavors of delicate dishes such as roast turkey or smoked duck and beet salad with a light balsamic dressing. A serious wine harvested from the second vineyard planted by the Mencarini family, this wine speaks truths to its varietal and character.”
