Kaena 2011 Grenache Rose Santa Ynez Valley


This delicious cranberry-hued wine has tasty ripe flavors of black cherry, strawberries, and citrus with a notable thread of raspberry liqueur. It’s a pretty, dry pink, which wineries often tag as a front porch wine. It’s made by winemaker Mikael Sigouin, who makes Beckmen wines, which are renowned for great rosés. This is Sigouin’s label—great as an aperitif and a smart choice for an array of casual foods. A wine this pleasurable won’t last long on market shelves. The 2012, which I haven’t tasted, is available at its Los Olivos tasting room, but you can still get this vintage at California Fresh in Pismo Beach (formerly El Rancho) for $16.99.
