"Wild Hare" Rose

"Wild Hare" Rose Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: The color of this vintage of Wild Hare is darker than pink, yet more delicate than red, with the typical Cabernet Franc ‘blue' hint that glimmers on the edge. The aromas are fresh, fruity and reminiscent of baby strawberries with a slight brush of raspberries. The palate is richer than the aromas imply with strawberries layered with the deeper flavors of red cherry and cassis. The palate is rich and slightly svelte, lengthening the finish, drawing out all the charm that makes a rosé the memories of summer.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Franc:
Cabernet Franc is an accessible, spicy, herbal, dark blue grape variety that is often compared to Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannin than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Sometimes the French refer to Cabernets, which could mean either of the two grapes. Its typical aromas include an herbaceous and pronounced peppery nose, even in ripe fruit, and something eerily like tobacco. The Cabernet Franc ripens at an earlier stage, which gives it reason to exist in the Bordeaux area. In the Loire, where we find it a lot, it gives a clear red fresh and fruity wine.
