By on April 9, 2015

The Malbec was groomed specifically for rosé, and it was harvested it at 20 Brix. Its salmon color leads to aromas of dried strawberry, cranberry, crushed cherries, white peach and rose hips. Tennyson finished it dry, allowing for a full expression of plum juice and red currant, framed by Craisin acidity, cherry skin tannin and a finish of more rose hips. Enjoy this with Jeff’s Famous Duck Tacos at the Gordon Estate Wine Bar in Pasco’s Broadmoor Park.

    Is great! Was surprised by the density and complexity, but maybe that’s a sign of trying too many lessor roses this season! This one is well worth the few extra $, will be getting a bunch more tomorrow.
