Alexander Valley Vineyards- Dry Rose of Sangiovese 2011

I’m secure enough in my manhood to proclaim my love of a good  rose.  Of course not the blush, white zin type of crap.  And boy did I love the rose I just had.  Alexander Valley Vineyards “Dry Rose of Sangiovese” 2011. This was a bright scarlet wine, with tons of flavors of strawberry, watermelon and a touch of tropical fruit.  Medium acidity with the barest hint of sweetness at the end.  The best rose I have had in a long, long time especially at this price.  I’m violating my rule of making sure I buy more before I post here, but I got it at the Frederick Wine House for around $12 if I recall.  I’m going to get a bunch for the summer. 100% Sangiovese, fermented in stainless steel.  13.2% ABV
