2012 Martinelli Rosé of Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast, California
WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 15.4%
Price at time of purchase: $22.00 (from winery)
Type: Ros�
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

No misprint on the alcohol: 15.4%! Yet this wine is nicely balanced and about five steps up from the basic boring quaffable rosé. Lively fruit flavors of strawberry, melon, and ripe apricot. Clean, easy going down, but lots of flavors and and a satisfyingly full texture. No feel of heat from the alcohol. My pick of the 2012 rosé's so far. - HK 2013-09-08
