Tightrope Winery Rosé 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaDeeply-hued, this year's rosé blends pinot noir, syrah, and barbera: strange bedfellows indeed. The grapes were crushed and left with skins for a couple of days prior to pressing, hence the deeper and day-glo tone of fuchsia. Candied raspberries, candied rhubarb rule the glycerol-slicked palate, lightly spiced, and finishing with an orange twang. Quite bold and fruit-forward, think of this as kool-aid for grown-ups. Crack now, as intended, with BBQ ribs or kabobs.Tasted: 07 May 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Tightrope WineryDistributors: Vintage Corks Limited
