2014 Walter Hansel Rosé of Pinot Noir

Happy birthday, America! Gazpacho, tomato purée, light cherry water, and rose water on the nose. A bit tinny on the palate with cherries, small red berries, and red stone fruit. A bit warm on the palate - alcohol doesn’t seem quite that well integrated. For a Cali rosé, this is fine at a 3, but you can find much better rosés from France and the Old World at this price. 

3/5 bones

I dont know whats up with me lately, but everything i do, i want to share with someone. I just feel like im over that stage, i want something real. i want someone i can share everything with, someone i can come to with good or bad news and theyd be there. someone who i can take on super nice dates to fancy restaurants just because i want to show her what shes worth, i want a girl i can spoil, but also a girl that would sit up at 2am with and watch tv when the weird infomercials are on. someone to share the small and big moments with. a girl to push me to do better and stick through it with me when my life gets hard, but most importantly a girl i could i could love and love me back just the same.
