Bonny Doon A Proper Pink 2015
It's a relatively dark brosé, having languidly experienced several hours in contact with its skins before pressing on skins. But it is really the Cabernet franc that carries the aromatic day. The nose shows the sensuality of a fully ripened lychee, pink peppercorn, with a suggestion of the scent of the hard candies one formerly found at at an American General Store. The palate is full-bodied and slightly fleshy. Flavors of cherry, watermelon, pink grapefruit, and black raspberry abound. The finish is savory, mentally taking us back to Asia and the faintest suggestion of crispy pork skin. Serve well chilled to preserve brightness and acidity.
