Wine of the Week: Thorny Rose Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

  • 0

When you’re the world’s largest wine conglomerate, like Constellation Brands, you can slice up the demographic

market and create a label to go after your chunk.

Thorny Rose was a label created for Millennials by Millennials, with edgy, modern design and screw cap packaging. Thank goodness they didn’t overlook the wine.

This is a Columbia Valley wine from Washington that is primarily cabernet sauvignon (83 percent), with a blend of merlot (14 percent) and syrah (3 percent). There’s plenty of body, an intriguing blend of fruit and spices, and great value for the price.

Sherry: “A full-bodied mouthfeel of black cherry and licorice with a rose floral finish.” 3-1/2 stars

Chris: “Scents of dusty earth and cedar, with flavors of plum, blackberry and cocoa on the finish.” 3-1/2 stars

Available locally from $9.50 to $12.

Coming next week: Hella Fine Merlot
