Calcu Rosé 2018
Wine Review OnlineMy first taste of fresh wine from the current calendar year almost always comes in the form of delicious rosé from Global Vineyard Importers, an exemplary company based in Berkeley, and this is almost always my favorite. Yet again, this purpose-built rosé (meaning, grown and made for this purpose, rather than just hosed from a tank of macerating red) is terrific. Very expressive in aroma and bursting with fresh fruit recalling pie cherries and ripe strawberries, it is full of flavor and fun, but also well suited to the table, thanks to very energetic acidity. Indisputably delicious, this should be of great interest to everybody who loves rosé, and especially to restaurateurs who know how many rosé lovers are out there--and how big a factor freshness is in their love affair, which is now year-round.
