J. Schram Rosé, North Coast – 2005
The 2005 J. Schram Rosé shows identifying characteristics of the cool growing season. The aroma is generous and bright with fresh strawberry, Mandarin orange and ripe cherry, followed by nuances of lemon custard and toasted almond. Flavors of raspberry and cherry are complemented by Ruby Red grapefruit, Meyer lemon and apricot. The palate finishes with lingering flavors of candied ginger and roasted hazelnut. The texture is both viscous and mouthwatering with a long and savory acidity.
