2012 Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare Rosé
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A soft, supple and beautifully textured rose that stays fresh and lively , the 2012 Vin Gris de Cigare Rose (62% Grenache, 17% Mourvedre, 9% Roussanne, 6% Grenache Blanc and 6% Cinsault) delivers loads of sweet strawberries, peach and crushed flower-like aromas and flavors. Delicious and quaffable in the best sense of the word, this beauty should be consumed over the coming 6-12 months. Drink now-2013.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Light, bright orange. Redcurrant and strawberry on the nose, with a hint of white pepper adding lift. Tangy and focused, offering bitter cherry and citrus zest flavors and a touch of herbacity. Clean and light on its feet, finishing with good cut and a lingering note of bitter orange pith.
