Wine is meant for special occasions...or days that end in Y!
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Happy Wine Wednesday to you guys!
So, this was supposed to be posted last week, but as usual, I’ve been all over the place. I’ve been singing the, “I need to get better organized,” song all year, and I am praying November is my month!
2020 started so slow, especially with the pandemic taking place. And now that things are slowly going back to normal, I feel like the year just started to speed up! LOL
Anyway, let’s get down to business!
Today’s review is going to be on Apothic Rosé wine. This wasn’t something I sought out to buy, but finding myself on the wine aisle, I figured why not, LOL.
Now, I’ve done a review on a Rosé wine before, where I mentioned though it’s known to be a dessert wine, it is considered to be food-friendly. And though I haven’t had that many in my life, I was under the impression that they were all sweet.
This one proved me wrong.
When I first smelled it, it did smell like a sparkling wine. Like an Arbor Mist fragrance, however, when I tasted it, it wasn’t as sweet as I was expecting it to be. In fact, it was very sour. Now, I am not sure if it’s because of the pasta dish I decided to pair it with, but it was just overall very tart.
So, you know I did my research. As I have mentioned before, Rosé wines pinkish color is from the red grape skins. After doing some research on this particular brand, I discovered Apothic Rosé is actually a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, which explains the Arbor Mist scent.
Apothic Rosé is going to have a higher acidity than you may find in most Rosé wines and will be medium-bodied. Now, this is no way to deter you from trying it if you like sweet wines. This wine is very fruit-forward, with a strawberry and watermelon hint.
I did discover that it’s paired best with beef, lamb, poultry, and spicy foods. So, it’s always possible my pasta just wasn’t the right juice for this bottle.
If you’ve been following my blog, then you know this isn’t the first Apothic wine I have had the pleasure of tasting. And I can’t wait to be able to cross them all off my list.
