Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Calliope Rose 2011 Wine Review
Very pretty and light with aromas of delicate field strawberries. Dry and refreshing. Terrific aperitif. 4.4/5 Rose food pairings: charcuterie, pork rillettes & summer radishes.

|Valerie Stride WSET ADV rated this wine as 4.2/5 with the following review:|
White peppered strawberries you say? A good-value, beautiful wine from start to finish. Firm strawberries and ripened raspberries greet your nose. An undertone of floral aromatics follow. The palate is that kind of spice you expect from a Syrah, but with less intensity. Cranberry, predominates just past the white pepper notes. Longer finish than expected! If you appreciate the colour of wine, you have to see this one; its salmon hues are something to behold! Tasted great with mulled apple cider marinated pork chops and tri-colour quinoa. Cheers!
|Syrah 70%: Viognier 30%|
A pretty vibrant, delicate pink colour with aromas of wild strawberry,
cherry, rose petal, peach and dried sage. The palate is savoury and dry with
refreshing acidity, bright red fruit flavours of summer berries and a long,
thirst-quenching mineral finish with hints of paprika and dried herbs.
