Erie Shore Vineyard 2004 Summer Sun Cabernet Rosé
(Re-Tasted September 2007) … By all rights this wine should go into my lost and found column, because I unearthed it on my drink now rack; guess I had forgotten to drink it now. This is a tale for those who believe that rosés should be drunk early and young - I was one of those. When I found it I thought "uh-oh” – but always willing to pop the cork on anything, I decided to give it a go. It was lovely ... peach, pear and apple flavors with a very inviting nose - not at all what I expected it to be, now over three years from vintage day. Proving that you can't always trust your preconceived notions.
