Bottle Age

I was prowling around in the far reaches of the cellar when I discovered a forgotten wine, a  2008 Domaine Guindon Gamay Coteaux d'Ancenis VDQS Rosé, a Loire valley rosé.  No doubt that it was purchased last year and quickly forgotten. 

Dinner was left over salmon and a wild rice dish with peaches and avocado.  We put a chill on the wine and opened it.  Nice color, very fruity aroma, and a great taste of strawberries, a bit of cherry and maybe some rhubarb.  Good acid and a bone dry finish.

Good, tasty wine that doesn't require thought, it just requires a glass.

12% alcohol and $10.
