Bass Phillip Rosé 2010

The first thing that strikes you about this wine is the bottle.  I didn't take a picture of it, but think a rolling pin with one arm, with 70s style design on the label.  Interesting in the crazy uncle sense of that word.  This wine has quite a lot going on: stalk, peach and struck match on the nose.  On the palate, similar, with good length too: something not often seen in a rosé.  The catch is that, while the quality is frankly very good, it is expensive for a rosé with a high $20s price point.

Rating: Good, Abv: 12.2%, Price: high $20s, Website:, Tasted: 2011
