Greenpoint Pinot Noir Rosé 2007

I like rosé, and though in most cases it isn't perhaps worthy of the consideration given to finer wines; at its best, it is refreshing and easy to drink.  Generally, therefore, I prefer rosé in its youth.  In this spirit, this 2007 rosé had lost a little freshness.  A slightly smokey, twiggy aroma, and a palate with "shake the bottle" levels of spritz that was otherwise pleasant but just a bit plain and flat.  I drank it though, so that perhaps says something about it (or me).  80 points.
