This rose’ is a moderately dry one that Petite Syrah wine lovers should appreciate. It has a wonderful aroma when first opened. The tannins are stronger initially, but that quickly tapers off and doesn’t distract from the finish. The age of this wine gives a full opportunity to see how the taste changes from the first pour to the last. As with any wine at this age, do let it aerate a while. If you have a decanter, that would be great! You should be able to enjoy this one through the evening before flavor profiles begin to deteriorate. You’ll be glad that you kept this one in the cellar to enjoy.
