Cline Cellars Mourvedre Rose
Beau at Basic Juice has put together a nice little introduction to Mourvedre, a grape we're not incredibly familiar with but sounds interesting. We're feeling a bit adventurous, and his description, which included words like "meaty, gamey, and wild" definitely caught our eye. He also recommends a Mourvedre Rose from Cline Cellars, the folks who put together White Truck and Red Truck, two wines our parents are fans of.
Fortunately, Cline's 2006 Mourvedre Rose ($15) doesn't finish off with any flavors that could be construed as meaty. It does however offer a nifty flavor combo of fresh strawberry, red plum and a touch of clove. While This pinkie is a bit big on the -OH side (13%), it rights itself with a spritz of acidity and a touch of textured tannin. As with most rose wines, Cline's pink Mourvedre will do its duty with nearly any unpretentious food. Try it with a turkey burger, cheese pizza or pasta.Cline Cellars
