Summer of chilled reds has begun
Ultra light tannins. Goes down super easy.

My first experience with one of Musar’s Rosés and I’ve got to say that it reminds me a lot of their Blanc but with a kiss of red fruit…which, in a sense, is exactly how this wine is made. Popped and poured; consumed over two hours. Served just a touch below cellar temp but it warmed in the glass. The wine presents as a sort of pale copper color. On the nose, a rather fascinating array of fruit including strawberry, watermelon, bing cherry, grapefruit, and generic tropical fruit. On the palate, I’m reminded more of Rainier cherries with kiwi, lemon, lanolin and almond skin. A rather fabulous body with wonderful texture…not too unlike LdH’s Tondonia Rosado, actually. Medium- tannin and medium+ acid. The finish is long and satisfying. No doubt, this is a very nerdy rosé and one that I look forward to experiencing more often! FWIW, Delectable misidentifies this as a blend of Chardonnay, Semillon and Cinsault when in fact this is Obaideh, Merwah and Cinsault. — 9 hours ago
Oh the jubilation of sitting outside on a beautiful day with people in addition to your immediate family and drinking the good stuff. What can be said about one of the world’s perfect rosés that hasn’t been said. Benchmark bright berries and watermelon citrus snap and mouthwatering acidity. Fresh and clean and disappears almost instantly on a warm day. Please sir, may I have some more? — a day ago
