I picked up the Kaia Rosé from a local wine shop on the day when I was really motivated to step outside of my comfort zone. Trying rosé wasn't really something I wanted to do after being first introduced by my mother to Beringer White Zinfandel... sorry mom, but it was NOT enjoyable. I lumped all rosés into the yucky category and moved on in my wine exploration.
Since that time, I've learned way more about wine, grapes, winemaking. I now know, you can write off a whole segment of wine from one bad experience. Enter this new idea of trying a bunch of different bottles of rosé to really learn what I DO like.
- Alcohol: 12.8%
- Varietal/Blend: Pinot Noir
Medium bodied blush color wine with floral and fresh strawberry aromas. It packs a punch with it's bold flavors of pomegranate, strawberry, and fresh cherry. There is a crispness that is almost tart, but not overwhelmingly so. It also had a creamy consistency that was very pleasant.
I can not tell you how much this wine surprised me. I actually said "WOW" out loud. Since, I was home alone... so only my dog heard me.
Because it was just me drinking it, it lasted me a few days and I was able to try it with more than one meal.
It paired well with creamy cheese and crackers (I know.. super adult dinner). However, it was not as good with the pasta and red sauce I had the next night, but I could see it going nicely with some salmon or pork.
We'll be picking up some more Kaia Rosé for sure!!
