Not a fan of "clever" labels but as an H.S.T fan I'm always a sucker for Montes' Steadman labels and this is a funny one.
This has a really fun Koolaid colour. Rose, candy and minty nose. High toned palate, very dry, only slightly sweet. No real Syrah character to speak of. Excellent all around food food wine, will cut right through rich dishes or even spicy ones like Thai or Indian. Would be interesting to to a Cherub/Tavel rose shootout. Quite good for the price.

Great value, was on sale for $12.95, picked up more. Deep cherry-electric-pink in the glass. Aromas are a nice weave of peppered strawberries, swiss chard leaves and cranberry. Those flavours are replayed on the palate with a bit of fructose like sweetness on the mid-palate but finish's crisp and dry. A bit of watermelon and cherry gum lingers on the finish. A plethora of dishes would suit, try piri piri chicken, fish tacos, jambalaya. Tasted Mar '12
