Kacaba Summertime Series Rebecca Cabernet Franc Petite Sirah Rosé 2010
V.Q.A., Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada
Vintages Wine Panel: This rosé blends Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah, the latter being quite a rare grape in Niagara. The results are fantastic. A very pretty nose of cherry, tulips, watermelon and red delicious apple. Dry, fresh and fruity with lively acidity and a tart and tangy finish. A great sipper. The painting on the label is “Twilight” by Canadian artist Todd La Chance. My note: A pretty, raspberry-fresh rose, with tart, mouth-watering acidity that makes it ideal for many dishes, from salmon to roast chicken. Delightfully alive in the glass! Cabernet Franc Petite Sirah Rosé food pairings: chicken-and-veggie stir-fry, salmon, chicken, seafood appetizers. Alcohol: 12.2%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2010‐2012  Best Value Rose  Price: $14.95 Score: 87/100
