R de Reillanne Non-Vintage Rose

Pay du Var IGP, southeastern France; 12.5% ABV
imported by 8Vini, Inc., San Leandro, CA
$5 at the Richmond, CA, store a couple weeks ago

On the first day, this wine was lovely, showing delicate white melon, cantaloupe, and strawberries, with light lavender and minerality.  The body and flavors were light, but to me this gave it an enticing elusiveness.  Very quaffable.

The next day, the flavors were much more forward, with the acid becoming a little rough.  It was still pretty tasty, but I preferred it on the first day.

      Hi Michael. You are correct. A reader who happened to have just purchased a couple bottles sent me a photo of the back label. It has no vintage and says nothing about composition. I updated the post to reflect this. Thank you.
