A Good Rose'
Last night with an Indian inspired meal we opened a bottle of Rose from France, Mas Carlot vin de pays d'oc fro Robert Kacher. This is a Rose that is packed with strawberry. It is almost like biting into a ripe strawberry. It went beautifully with the exotic spices in the chicken dish. This was not a "hot" dish, but had lively seasoning and the wine went with it beautifully. The wine is a blend of Grenache 55%, Syrah 40% and Mouvedre 5% which explains the big fruit. This is just a great all around wine and is big enough to stand up to fairly heavy foods.
