Wine Review: This dark pink colored wine opens with a pleasant mild strawberry and wet stone like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, lush and fills your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused sweet ripe strawberry with hints of green apple. The finish is dry and its flavors subtly dissipate. This dry rose is food friendly and would pair well with fried calamari or popcorn shrimp from Legal Sea Foods. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2013 Vin de Porche offers a fresh, extremely inviting nose of bright raspberry, strawberry and Bing cherry fruit with hints of orange and spice. On the palate, the wine is dry, yet round and juicy, with rich berry, cherry, citrus and mineral flavors framed by a light, savory, black pepper spiciness that extends into the refreshing, mineral-tinged finish. A delightful sipping and aperitif wine, Vin de Porche also makes a delicious accompaniment to grilled seafood and chicken, barbecued meats, pasta salads, country ham and spicy Latin and Asian dishes.
