Desparada 2017 Arclight Rosé (California)

It's not common to find a rosé based on a blend, but this pink mix of 60% Barbera, 27% Sangiovese and 13% Nebbiolo is quite a stunner, starting with aromas of tangy red plum, plush strawberry and orange peel. The palate is sharp and tangy with tangerine pith on the entry, then opens toward rounded red plum, watermelon and mandarin orange flesh flavors, bolstered by a chalky grip and strong acidity.
