WTN: Take a drink from his special cup, Doctor Arnot-Roberts

2012 Arnot-Roberts Touriga Nacional Luchsinger Vineyard - USA, California, North Coast, Red Hills Lake County (8/16/2013)
Is this the 2011? No, but then I think only Miguel Cabrera is capable of such excellence in back to back years. It is still an excellent Rosé, offering pretty, sweet red fruit, a lovely floral element and a little bit of chalky bite on the finish. It's delicious on its own or with sushi (last night's dinner), and a bottle disappears in short order. I was especially pleased to be drinking it in a more early fall temperatures where the wine was not chilled to within an inch of its life, thus gets to show more of what it has.
