Rose' Corbieres

Our unusually cool weather pattern is ending and the week ahead promises to be typical summer - hot and humid.  We managed to get in one more evening one the patio before the humidity returned.  There was grilled chicken leg quarters, a nondescript pasta salad and a 2014 Domaine Sainte-Eugenie Corbieres rose'.

The wine is a blend of Cinsault and Syrah. A beautiful pale pink to copper color in the glass gave way to fresh berries on the nose.

The wine was bone dry and very mineral like in its mouth feel.  There was good depth of fruit and great acid but it was that wet rock sense the lead the way.  It was something I really liked.

Nothing too serious here and it was great with the chicken and the price was great.  Perfect picnic wine.

Domainee Sainte-Eugenie Corbieres Rose'.  13% alcohol and $11.
