Willow Vineyard NV Baci Rosé (Michigan)
Tonight we tried another one of our Michigan wines, a Pinot Noir Rosé, from a very pretty winery, Willow Vineyard. Unfortunately, the wine did not measure up to the winery, a classic case of the wine tasting better at the winery then it did when you get it home. Now I am not saying it was bad, it had a nice earthy-raspberry flavour on the palate but very little on the nose, and was quite dry on the palate - pretty classic for a rosé; but it lacked umph and punch that would have made it stand out.
