2012 Mirabeau Côtes de Provence Rosé
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault, the 2012 Rosé is a classic Provencal red that offers up loads of juicy strawberry, mint and hints of herbs as well as a medium-bodied, supple and downright gulpable profile on the palate. Upfront and fruit-driven, with juicy acidity, it’s a crowd pleaser meant for a hot summer day and warrants a multi-bottle purchase. [Drink now-2013]
From the hills of the Côtes de Provence, the Mirabeau rosé offers classic fruit aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, and red currant. With a crisp palate of ripe red fruits and zesty apple, and a little creaminess on the midpalate, Mirabeau's rosé has elegance, brightness and finesse, making for a classy rosé perfectly suited for Provencal-inspired picnics or as a backyard dinner aperitif. Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. 12.5% abv.
