2006 S.C.Pannell Grenache Rose
"Lurid pink. Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh raspberry, strawberry preserves and cherry, brightened by mineral and lavender notes. Silky in texture, with sweet, impressively concentrated red berry flavors complicated by a late kick of floral pastille. The fruit builds on the energetic, sharply focused finish. This reminded me of a Gigondas rose, and an excellent one at that."
