Wine Review: Little Black Dress Rosé 2017

Little Black Dress Rosé 2017

It feels like it wasn't that long ago when rosé was just suddenly everywhere... but it wasn't a consumer driven push. The wineries and marketers were responsible and the people weren't buying it. Whelp, the strategy worked because since then things have changed. Rosé is HUGE with consumers. And I feel like I've tasted and/or reviewed a thousand of them already this spring (my wine pick for the month of June is even a rosé).

Today I've got Little Black Dress's 2014 Rosé. It's made from Zinfandel and Petite Sirah out of Mendocino County, California, and it has an ABV of 12%.

The color of the wine is salmon pink. On the nose there's strawberry, watermelon and... grapefruit? Grapefruity rosé. Mmmkay. On the palate it's full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. There's flavors of strawberry, watermelon, grapefruit, and a harsh and bitter lime peel. The finish is probably the best part because it turns into Jolly Rancher candy and peaches, but it's still not as good as that sounds in writing or verbally. *cringes*

Yeah sorry, but no. I am not a fan of this at all. You can find some pretty outstanding rosé for the same price as this one, so you should be buying those instead.

QUALITY VS PRICE RATING
Price: $12
Rating: 2/5 = Not Impressive (what does that mean?)
