Bonny Doon 2003 Vin Gris de Cigare California Pink Wine ($10.99)
This is a clear, rosy-copper wine with a distinct tint of orange. Pleasant fresh-fruit aromas, strawberry and watermelon with a snap of citrus, lead into a crisp and juicy flavor that mirrors the nose, nearly dry if not bone-dry, and framed by zippy acidity. Nicely balanced, a fresh and appealing rosé. US Importer: (May 5, 2005)

FOOD MATCH: Well-matched with a dinner salad with an Asian accent, shredded chicken and cucumbers tossed in a lightly spicy soy-wasabi dressing with a dash of vermouth.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
