Carol Shelton Wild Thing 'Rendezvous' 2016 Rosé (Mendocino County)

Carol Shelton Wild Thing 'Rendezvous' 2016 Rosé (Mendocino County), $12.74-$14.99, 90 points, poured a bright cranberry juice red.
Profuse strawberry aroma was softened with hibiscus (quite nice).
Light-bodied with better than good acidity carried a bit of bubble gum flavor along with strawberry and a floral vibe.
Finished long on the trailing palate, watermelon, ginger, and a well-balanced 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my El Nachos Grande.
Varietals were 76% Carignane, 18% Zinfandel, 5% Pinot Noir, and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.
