Tonight is the 2015 Bandol Rose Domaine de La Bastide Blanche a blend of Mourvedre, Cinsault and Grenache.

The nose is very floral and fruit forward with notes of strawberry, raspberry, peach, tangerine, blood orange, red currant, spice and minerality.

If this tastes as good as it smells it can be a fantastic find. On the palate the wine is crisp and dry there is creamy red berries, strawberry, raspberry, fleshy floral notes, spice and river rock.

The wine has a medium + acidity with a medium crisp finish. A very nice rose that would be great in the summer with some fresh fish over looking the Mediterranean.

Have a great hump day and enjoy the rest of the week. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷

Needs more acid. Great Flavors. But creamier than I would like.

Salmon color with lifted red berry, melon, blood orange, wet stone, ocean breeze and a hint of damp dusty earth aromas. On the palate it's medium-bodied, layered and fresh with fine concentration and mixed melon, stone fruit, red berry, flavors with and herbal note and a very giving mineral driven dry finish. Great value at $22!
