Wine Review: This coral colored wine from Merriam is very good. It opens with a mild watermelon and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced light strawberry and red cherry blend with a hint of a clove spice drop. The finish is dry and pleasantly refreshing. This Rose is very food friendly and terrific summer option to consider. A second glass is a must and I would pair it with bacon wrapped shrimp. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: I love the beautiful salmon color of this wine. It has soft, subtle aromas of fresh cut wildflowers, rose water, strawberries and wet stone. This wine is earthy-but-elegant with hints of watermelon and raspberry lemon candy. The only thing it’s missing is a sunny day on the patio.
