A must-try sparkling wine: 2017 Kobal Wines, Penina Rose Brut from Slovenia

Since John first recommended the 2017 Kobal Wines, Penina Rose Brut, Ptuj, Slovenia I have purchased nearly a case of it to drink at home and to share with my family.  This is a sparkling rose wine made from Blaufrankisch.  It has a bit of everything such that is satisfies both casual and serious drinkers.  Grab a few bottles this weekend from MacArthur Beverages.

2017 Kobal Wines, Penina Rose Brut, Ptuj, Slovenia – $19
Imported by Vinum USA. Alcohol 12%. A light color of dried roses. Strong, spaced out bubbles bring immediate flavors of toast and baking spiced fruit. There are cranberry fruit flavors but dark red fruits lurk as well. This is a dry wine with stone notes towards the finish. Quite satisfying right now. I particularly like how the ripe baking spices mix with the bubbles on the tongue. *** Now – 2020.
