Wine Review: Ceja 2008 Bella Flor Rose`

Note: This bottle image is from the 2007 vintage.

This wine has a light cranberry color. The nose is fresh, with a slight hint of rose petals and aromas of red berried fruit like raspberries and dark cherries. The palate has those same red berried fruit flavors along plum, with a hint of pepper.  The wine also has great acidity. This is a full-bodied  and well-structured rose` which is made from Syrah. This rose` would pair well with spring and summer fare right off the grill. I think this wine would pair well with a burger, spicy sausage (like andouille), pork chops or chicken off the grill. Another pairing would be a basic tomato, garlic and basil bruschetta. I would also pair this with a nice piece of cheddar cheese as a quick appetizer.  Note:  This wine was a sample provided by Ceja Vineyards. RSP $22.00

This is a rose` that a man could feel "manly and proud" to "drink pink!"
