Macari Rose 2010
To me, sometimes fruit is a better thirst quencher than a simple glass of water. And the Macari Rose 2010 from Long Island's North Fork is a case in point. The wonderful wet aromas of a freshly cut watermelon... luscious ripe strawberries picked this morning... and juicy red berries previewing the bright flavors of fresh squeezed cherries and contrasting nicely with hints of citrus to balance things out. And ending happily with a smooth and long finish.
The blend by the way is 70.7% merlot, 14.5% Cabernet Franc, 9.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5.6% Malbec with 13.8% alcohol. This is a summertime must-have at $15 SRP.
