Skinner Vineyards 2010 Grenache Rosé” A winery in the Sierra Foothills I have my eyeballs on. This Rosé is mostly Grenache with a touch of Mourvedre. Color – clear, salmon-strawberry color. On the nose -cherry, red fruit, hint of watermelon, tomato vine, red hard candy. Palate – Enjoyable, food friendly, excellent acidity. Cherry, hard candy vibrant front palate , pleasant mid palate, and a lingering finish with notes of spice & hazelnut.
