Wine Review: I was told that this wine was the most popular Rosé wine sold by the wine shop that I purchased it at. After trying it, I can see why. This pink wine opens with a nice refreshing light berry bouquet. On the palate, the wine has terrific strawberry like fruit flavors. This medium bodied Rosé wine was nicely balanced, very easy to drink, and a touch tart. The finish was dry and nicely prolonged. I really liked this wine. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Exhibits fruity and floral notes, good structure in the mouth that permits a nice combination with food. Freshness and good acidity for this dry rose.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Rose.
