Wine Review: This dark pink colored Rose made from Pinot Noir opens with a mild clementine like bouquet with hints of faint wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild strawberry with notes of faint red raspberry. The finish is dry, clean and refreshing. This crowd pleasing Rose would be perfect with sharp cheese served slightly chilled by the pool on a hot summer day. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This lovely Rose has a beautiful light strawberry color and undertones of white raspberry, white pear, young tart strawberries and floral notes. With crisp, cleansing acidity and a bright, lingering finish, this wine is the perfect complement to a wide variety of dishes.
