Seven Hills Dry Rose 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

70% Cabernet Franc, with Petit Verdot and Malbec Harvested about two weeks early and cropped a bit heavier Light candied strawberries greet the nose along with subtle dusty and floral aromas. This is incredibly light and fresh in the mouth with a hint of herb lurking under the zesty red currant, strawberry fruit. tense and small scaled in the mouth, this is gulpable with a long mineral finish that shows some lime acidity and a bit of pithy bitterness. Pure refreshment. 88pts

The wine is a lovely blend of mainly Cabernet Franc with a bit of Petit Verdot and Malbec which makes for a nice structure and some great fruit expressions. This wine is a very pale rose, with a color that just reminds me of magnolia blossoms. The nose is just a breath of summer, with aromas of fresh herbs, green grass and some fresh summer fruit notes of grapefruit and peach. The taste is a burst of summer flavors, cool citrus and tropical notes that quickly transition to fresh herbs and a hint of spice. The finish is absolutely bone dry, in fact I've never had a rose this dry before, but it was such a wonderful treat, such a crisp and refreshing wine that was quite unexpected.
