Coturri Rose’ – slightly dry and totally drinkable

Typically, I have our intern write reviews of wines we taste out.  I changed my mind for the Coturri wines and decided to write them up myself; I probably should be doing more reviews of this nature for you and this is a great set of wines to start that off with!

I’m sitting here today with the temperatures escalating to above normal for our area. They are forecasting temperatures to soar to 81-83° today. That may not seem like much to those of you off the mountain, but here in Blowing Rock, NC that is pretty toasty.  Anytime the weather grows warm and I long for something to cool me off, I reach for a crisp dry Rose, and the Coturri Rose’ is one the finest Roses you can ask for.

As he poured this wonderful nectar into our glasses, an aroma of raspberries and currants filled the room.  As we lifted the glasses, the light danced through the translucent brilliance of bright red wine. Once we had the wine in our mouth, the flavor exploded and danced just as the aroma doing a fiery tango across the tongue with dynamic flavors of raspberry, red currant, and just a light sense of fizzle as you finished the sip.

For anyone who has a fear of rose wine, this is a wonderfully dry, crisp rose that will pair with heavy spice laden fish dishes, of lighter red meat dishes. Of course, simply sipping it on the back deck well chilled on a  hot summer evening is paradise in the glass also.
