Clos du Soleil Rosé 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaI'm not a huge fan of cabernet sauvignon rosé but if it's ripe and fresh it can be fun. Clos du Soleil is a medium red coloured rosé, it is cabernet after all, and it is a mix of red cranberry-style fruit with a twist of strawberry. The palate is similar with more of a raspberry fruit character flecked with menthol and vanilla. This is a rosé built for food - veal or pork and red pepper brochettes would be a fine choice.
