The last couple nights I was sipping a 2006 Iron Horse Vineyards sangiovese rosé that ran me about $11.
Iron Horse is in Sonoma County near Sebastopol. (A nice web site at www.ironhorsevineyards.com.)
I was developing a taste for rosés with the pinot-based ones I've been drinking lately, but this one set me back.
It wasn't bad, but the fruitiness was on the cranberry end of the spectrum, a little too tart for my taste. I did like the spice notes in it.
I mainly drank this without food. I'm guessing it might pair well with a good tomato sauced pasta or a pizza with lots of tomato.
