REVIEW: Barry Family Cellars 2017 Rosé of Cabernet Franc
If you enjoy Cabernet Franc-based rosé (and I definitely do), this might be your new favorite, as well as a new benchmark. Bright fruity aromas of red cherries and raspberries are accented by a nice bit of citrusy herbs -- think lemon verbena and balm -- with a subtle bit of earthy spice.
Medium-light in body, it offers more of that bright, juicy red fruit with a little key lime pie filling, those lemony herbs and just a bit peppery edge. The acidity is absolutely crackling here with a lime-y juiciness that really stretches out the long, dry finish.
