Passaggio Wine New Generation Grande Cappello Rosé 2010

“Life is like a new hat. You don’t know if it suits you if you keep trying it on in front of your own mirror.” —  Shirley McLaine.

Passaggio Wine New Generation Grande Cappello Rosé was inspired by winemaker Cynthia Cosco’s mother and her “big hat.”  Wine Harlots say hat’s off to Cynthia!  This is a gorgeous wine; the color is bright pink, the color of raspberry juice, with flavors of strawberry, raspberry and hints of rose petal.  If you hurry, you can order a few bottles to share with mom on Mother’s Day. This is a terrific wine to honor your mom with.  The perfect pairing is Spinach Salad with Strawberries, Goat Cheese & Walnuts.  The music match is “Momma” from Melody Gardot from the album Some Lessons.

The details: Alcohol 13.4%. Cork closure. Appellation: Napa. Varietal: In the grand European tradition, the grape type is unlisted. American’s are fixated on varietals, Wine Harlots say hush up and drink your wine. The price is $17 USD and is available directly from Passaggio. This was a media sample generously provided by the winery.

If you haven’t discovered the joys of rosé, you should check out Passaggio Wine Grande Cappello Rosé. Like hats, if you haven’t tried it, you’ll never know if it suits you.
