2008 Charity Case Rosé ~ What you get when big hearts join together to make great wine

First the wine….

Upon opening the wine, there was an exciting hint of a mineral flint sensation on the nose, reminding me of a fine French Chablis. The refreshing variety of melons; watermelon and cantaloupe; along with green apple, provide a light fruit flavor. The delicate tannin provides just the right amount tingle sensation for a clean finish.

We enjoyed this wine with a spicy chicken wing dish, and were glad the wine provided cooling relief while retaining its structure. I anticipate this would go well with summer barbecues and Chesapeake style crab feasts, to cool down the kick of ‘Old Bay Seasoning”

I encourage you to consider serving this wine for your summer events; Bridal Showers, Graduation parties, Weddings, Sunday Brunches. Think of serving this as an alternative to Champagne, it is that beautiful in the glass!

Now the winemakers….

 

Before even opening a wine to drink I read the labels, front and back. Labels provide a lot of information, not only about the wine, but the region, the vineyard, etc.  When I got my hands on this bottle, what struck me the most is what is missing… the names of the winemakers. This wine is made from a group of dedicated Napa Valley winemakers who believe in purpose, to give back to the community, and who are doing it without personal promotion.

100% of the net proceeds from the sale of Charity Case wines are donated to charities in and around Napa County California.
