2015 Don Ernesto's Beret Rosé
Rose of Syrah
"Good wine shouldn't be complicated. Like a rainbow or a puppy or a beautiful sunset, wine should make you feel happy to be alive and enjoying life surrounded by friends. Don Ernesto is just that kind of fun . . . in a bottle”
- Don Ernesto
(And for those of you who don’t know, Don Ernesto has been known to moonlight as Ernie Weir, winegrower and owner of Hagafen Cellars.)
Tasting Notes: This lovely Rosé is made from 100% Syrah. The name Beret completes the Bracha line, "Beret Prix Hagafen". The nose on this beautiful salmon colored wine is redolent with great cherry, raspberry and strawberry along with floral notes and sweet fruit. The mouth on this lovely, medium bodied Rosé starts with great spice, currant, grapefruit, citrus and cloves. The spicy finish is long and lingering with great minerality, intense acidity, tart fruit, crazy grapefuit and lemon. Bravo!!
