This is even better than the 2006, and easily the best Pradeaux Rose I’ve ever had. Salmon pink color that lures one to believe that it’ll be a thin quaffer of a wine. Nothing could be further from the truth. Strawberry, red currant, minerals, lavender and sea breeze on the nose. On the palate, I could guess this as a red wine if I tasted it completely blind. Explosive on the palate and the most remarkable minerality, crushed rock, gravel sensation. Finish is ultra long for rose. I’ll amend my earlier statement. The best rose I’ve ever had, period.
