I have had several wines from Anakena and I am sure that I have written about them in the past, but those are some of the reviews that got lost.  When I saw this rosé made from Cabernet Sauvignon, I just had to pick it up.

Of all things, I am choosing to have it with sandwiches; in this case, one turkey ham on rye and one turkey breast on rye.  This wine is a spicy compliment with undertones of plums and raspberries.  The finish is quick, lasting no more than ten seconds, and the spice hit is also very quick, lasting just several seconds.  The color is a lovely pink and the texture and weight of this wine is light.

This is a winner.
