One of the opening salvos in this year’s roses may be one of our best new introductions to our domestic rose lineup. I can’t say I have sampled too many California wines of any color made from Touriga Nacional & Tinta Cao, but on the strength of this example, I’d certainly be glad to try more. A real high mountain stream of a wine, this is taut, vibrant, and refreshing, with light flavors of cantaloupe and pomelo and an implied bitterness behind. The only off note is that it is likely to be as long gone as the cherry blossoms by the time the weather catches up: grab some while you can!
