2006 Iron Horse Sangiovese Rosé

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.
