2012 Nichelini Cabernet Sauvignon Rose’


Today marks the first day of daylight savings time.  We loose an hour of sleep, but I prefer to have the sun set later in the day anyway.  We also had a day in the mid forties, which we haven’t seen in a while.  It had been months since we can even stand being outside, so I decided to scrape some of the winter snow and ice off of the driveway.  Of course, Chris has to take a picture and share it with her friends on Facebook.

After thirty minutes of scraping and shoveling I had enough.  I came in wanting a glass of wine and since the mercury is moving north, I thought why not have a glass of Rose’ to celebrate the warm weather!  Lucky for me I had a 2012 Nichelini Cabernet Sauvignon Rose’ in my pantry cooler.  I also noticed it was time to stock that cooler again.

The wine was pale with a beautiful Salmon hue.

The Rose’ of Cabernet Sauvignon was very aromatic and young.  I immediately smelled strawberry soda like the kind I drank as a kid.

It was a little dry, light-bodied and slightly tart.  The tannins were very weak and soft.  It was sweet with a long lingering finish.

abv: 13.5%

How much: $20.00

The 2012 Nichelini Cabernet Sauvignon Rose’ was a great start to the welcomed warm weather.  Chris is planning on grilling chicken, the Rose’ should pair well with it too.

I rated the 2012 Nichelini Cabernet Sauvignon Rose’ four glasses.

In Vino Veritas!
