Wine Review: This strawberry colored Rose opens with a mild Clementine and light raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and crisp. The flavor profile is a slightly tart plum with a touch of minerality and strawberry. The finish is dry and pleasant. This easy going Rose would be nice on a hot afternoon with grilled honey mustard chicken. Enjoy -Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine is a delightful accompaniment to a light summer lunch, a leisurely picnic, or a laid-back summer evening. Our Rose has vibrant strawberry and late-summer watermelon aromas with echoing flavors, all supported by bracing acidity and a citrus-like finish.
