Wine Review: This dark salmon pink colored wine from Calera opens with a fragrant strawberry and watermelon bouquet with a hint of grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a ripe pink grapefruit with notes of peach pit and nectarine. I also detected hints of plum. The finish is dry and its refreshing acidity and flavors linger for quite a while. This Rose is going to appeal to fans of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. I would serve it at the beach on a hot summer day. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A blast of fresh, ripe strawberry, raspberry zing and lemon zest make a lively start to this spunky dry rosé! Crafted from two local Central Coast Pinot Noir vineyards, it's rich like a creamsicle and succulent like a watermelon candy; bright, refreshing and full of flavor, it’s the perfect anytime sipper.
