Mission Briefing

Codename:

Palliative and palpable

Who knew that Rosé was a great holiday wine? When we tasted through all of Peterson’s wines in search of a great wine for the coming holidays, we settled squarely on today’s delicious Peterson Winery 2012 Big Pink Rosé. This is a wonderful aperitif or first-course treat for the holidays, and we actually suggest that the wine would be at home on the table as a main course accompaniment.

You know of our deepening love for all wines Peterson, and today’s delicious and very highly recommended Big Pink Rosé reinforces our abiding rapture. This wine is at once refreshing, complex and enticing, with aromas and flavors that will cause quite a stir at your upcoming holiday gatherings.

Tasting Profile

Look:

A beautiful, slightly coppery pink, from heart to rim.

Smell:

A bold nose for a rosè, with fruity notes of fresh cherry and Meyer lemon zest overlaying slight floral notes of rose petal and hibiscus.

Taste:

Bright and refreshing, with clear flavors of red d’Anjou pear, yellow peach, golden raspberry, and a slight hint of rose hip white tea.

Finish:

Wonderfully crisp, with an elegant layered dimensionality, the bright fruit notes transition into a slight slate and limestone minerality at the end of the palate.

Pairing:

Perfectly paired with a first course, such as spinach salad with strawberries, walnuts, bacon bits, and feta.
