Disclosure: I received this bottle of wine from WineQ as part of my Beta Club Membership.
I swear I took a picture of this wine. I remember taking the pictures. But it's not on my memory card or loaded into my computer, so I'm stumped as to what happened to it. Apparently this is the week of lost wine pictures.
In any case, the wine was a bottle of 2006 Jeriko Estates Rose. It can be purchased from WineQ for $12.99 (and free shipping if you spend $35), it clocked in at 14.1% alcohol by volume, and had a real cork closure. The wine is from Mendocino and is organically produced as are all wines from Jeriko Estates.
On the nose I found strawberry, lime, and kiwi. I wish I had my picture, I especially recall noting the cool salmon color of this wine. You'll have to deal with the giant stock photo courtesy of WineQ though! In the mouth the wine showed strawberry, lime, and watermelon.
Overall, the wine was quite fruity, but it had good acidity and structure so the fruits weren't sweet, but nice and tart. In my ever so eloquent notes, I described the wine as "Yummy!" and I really enjoyed the fruit qualities in the bottle. This is one I really enjoyed, especially for the price, and have already added to my Q at WineQ!
