2006 Foley Rosé – Santa Ynez Valley

Hot pink color. Another wine with a refreshing minerality that comes out up front. Floral nose with just a whiff of light cherry. Almost a cherry cotton candy aroma but definitely bright red berry. Dry. Medium bodied for a rosé. Just a slight acidic tang. Red fruit really lingers on the tongue. Good rose that’s slightly above average. B-.

Bought at the Foley Estate for $16.

This wine note is a prelude to a larger post I’ll do regarding our visit to California Wine Country where Tahirih and I spent three days tasting in Santa Barbara County and one day visiting Sonoma County.

It was fun and enlightening. I’m just not sure where to start in blogging about our trip. I’ll have to let it sit so look for a post later.
