Wine Review: Cornerstone Cellars Red Hills Lake County 2009 Rose

I have to be honest, I’m NOT a big fan of rose so I’ll have to evaluate this wine based on what I know and enjoy. We’ll start with the pinkish red tint of color and the apparent blueberry fruit on the nose. A sip confirms blueberry and a hint of pepper on the back of the palate from the Syrah/Grenache blend.

As I mentioned in my previous review of Stepping Stone, these wines are drinkable now but could improve with some age. The Rose is a wine that is meant for summer sipping by itself or with light seafood, perhaps ceviche.
