With the warm weather, a chilled Rose can be quite refreshing. This evening, I opened a bottle of 2006 Craftsman Pinot Noir Rose from Hungary ($10). Hungary is a lesser known wine region but I have had a couple good wines from there, including this Rose.
This wine is a rich pink color with an abundance of fruit flavors, noticeably strawberry. It is a bit sweeter than the last Rose I reviewed, but still is very crisp and the sweetness is far from cloying. The finish is not overly long but it is a refreshing wine, light and flavorful. It is a good value Rose and I recommend it as a Drink & Buy.
