The 2017 Fragile is made largely from Grenache grapes with small percentages of Syrah and Carignan in the blend. It was vinified in stainless steel tanks. Alcohol hits a high-for-rosé 15.3% abv and the wine retails for $18.
Fragile - I don't believe it’s pronounced frah-ghee-lay - has a big, bright nose full of big, bright red fruit. A bit of heat pokes its head through, too, owing to the 15% alcohol content. That cherry-red fruit comes through on the palate as well, with a boatload of acidity to boot. The winery notes say Fragile pairs well with lighter fare and warm, sunny days. I'd have it with pork chops in a heartbeat.
