|Jacob's Creek Shiraz Rosé 2004 (Australia)

The color is bright pink, like melon KoolAid. The aroma hints of cherries and grapefruit. And the taste is a bit sour for my liking, with a heavy, cloying texture.
This rosé lacks the silky honey quality of my favorite white zinfandels, as well as the fresh crispness of whites I have enjoyed. In short, I'm not very impressed. I am biased toward California pink wines, but I hope there is a French, Australian, or South African rosé that will eventually change my mind.
