Fleur Pinot Noir Rosé North Coast 2011 – Wine Review

Fleur Pinot Noir Rosé North Coast 2011 - Wine Review

Name of wine:  Fleur Pinot Noir Rosé North Coast 2011 (100% Pinot Noir, North Coast AVA)

Price paid:  $13

Where purchased:  Mollie Stones, San Francisco, California

Tasting Notes and my Comments:  I really like this rosé and will be buying several bottles more during this summer season.  Fleur Wines pours at the Taste at Oxbow wine salon in Napa.

Color:  Medium red and translucent.

Nose:  Bright and pale watermelon.

Palate:  Acidity.  Slightly silky mouth feel.  Not sweet or very fruity.  Slightly salty on the tongue with a long finish.

Food:  This Fleur rosé is very drinkable on its own.  A suggested food pairing would be lighter fare such as grilled vegetables or a fresh salad.  Lighter cheeses would go well too.

HOT!: We will be discussing Rosé wines of the world on VinoChat on August 9, 2012 at 6pm Pacific Time
