Lot 37 Campo de Borja Rose 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Gorgeous ruby red color. Aromas of watermelon, strawberry, and white pepper. Tastes like a watermelon Jolly Rancher Candy but finishes dry and crisp. This Rosé is juicy with oodles of watermelon, strawberry, and raspberries that greet you right up front. Excellently structured with some nice depth here, a little touch of white pepper lingers on the finish. This wine calls for summer BBQs filled with grilled vegetables and seafood and is great for picnics! Even in the hot tub! Cameron Confidential: When planning this project with our international sourcing winemaker I thought for sure we would want to focus on southern France, mainly Provence and Tavel. He indicated that the best Rosés in his opinion were coming from Spain but that he would put together samples from a variety of producers in both areas. When we lined them all up, the clear winners were the wines from the Campo de Borja region of Spain—and the best of the bunch comprises Lot 37. The wine is made saignée (meaning juice is bled off crush to concentrate the flavors) and is 100% Garnacha (Grenache). It's hard to offer comparative pricing as Rosé is such an emerging category here in the States. If you plug this wine into the traditional importer/distributor model, you are looking at a price between $16 and $19, but you get it for $10.
