Now here's a rose that really threw me off guard. After reading the blend (50% syrah, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 25% cabernet franc) my expectations for this rose were really low. I was expecting a very bright fruit bomb with little character, but what I got was definitely more complex than my expectations. While there is a touch of fruit on the back of the palate, it's never overbearing, the acidity is well balanced, and overall, the Para Maria Rose is an easy sipper for a nice summer day.
