Barry Family Cellars 2016 Rosé of Cabernet Franc
The great thing about Cabernet Franc rosés like this one is how they can straddle the fruity with the savory. Aromas of red cherries, watermelon, and wild strawberries are accented nicely by an earthy note reminiscent of dried autumn leaves.
Medium-light in body, red berries again lead the way, but layers of cola and savory summer herbs bring a nice bit of complexity, while brisk, nervy acidity makes it quite lively. There is faint but distinct minerality on the end of a medium-long finish to boot.
