This is a fun one!
I’ve never been a rosé drinker. I was going up to Santa Barbara to visit an old friend and wanted to bring a treat for the afternoon, so I chose this wine. Partially because of its price, partially because it is from Paso Robles (a favorite wine producing region), but also because it’s pink and I’m a girl and I was going to see another girl and I just wanted something fun.
And fun it was. Bright, light (although holding its own in alcohol content – I recommend sipping for sure!), fruity and super fun to drink. Why super fun? I’m not sure. Maybe just because it was different from what I usually drink. Maybe it was being near the ocean with a dear friend whom I hadn’t seen in a long time and I had no idea how much I had missed. Whatever the reason, I fully enjoyed this unexpectedly pleasurable wine.
If you poke around on the internet, you will read that Robert Hall Rosé de Robles tastes wild strawberry with bright red berry fruit. Light and crisp come up as well. I’d agree with all of that. But overall, I’d just say “delightful.” Drink it chilled – I think you’ll be happy you did.
Until next Wednesday!
