2005 Lenz Blanc De Noir

This dry blush table wine is delicate and balanced, and looks similar to a Rose but it’s actually a Pinot Noir with an earthy sour cherry freshness, and a little granny smith apple. Eric Fry complained that Roses tend to be colorized and sweetened… this wine is just what the Pinot Noir gave him. And this one would hold up to a tumbler of ice (if one was so inclined). It's made from grapes of the 2nd half of the pressing of the Pinot Noir Cuvee. Retails for $15 per bottle.
