2006 Handley Pinot Noir Rosé

Here's the 2006 Handley Pinot Noir Rosé from Mendocino County, California. $16. Packaged in an attractive clear Alsatian Hoch bottle, which really helps to show off the color of the wine from pale pink at the neck to a deeper coral by the shoulders.

It's got a light strawberry aroma. The flavor is crisp berry, but not tart. A good lunch wine. While I'm sipping this it's below freezing outside, but it would be a great wine for a picnic this spring.
