Vini 2013 Rosé of Pinot Noir and Syrah

imported by Bulgarian Master Vintners, LLC, of Sonoma, CA
$5 at the Richmond, CA, store on 6 Nov

Vini_2013_RoseAs the third of the three Bulgarian wines we received in a shipment, I wanted to try this one, too.  (Previously reviewed: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.)  While I still prefer the more minerally southern French rosés (at a very similar latitude), this is pretty good.

The wine is a pretty elegant meld of light raspberry / quince jelly, orange / tangerine, white flowers, and light vanilla.  I slightly miss the structure and  delicateness of the Southern French rosés, but this is pretty good.
