Wine Review: This strawberry colored Carignan based Rose from Carol Shelton is very nice and a great deal. It opens with a mild strawberry scented bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gentle strawberry and mineral blend with a faint hint of watermelon in the background. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This Rose is a perfect wine for the beach. It is very quaffable, nicely priced and goes down easy. Serve it slightly chilled and share it with friends. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Light cranberry color, juicy strawberry-watermelon fruit aromas, nice mineral, hint of pink grapefruit. Refreshingly crisp and dry. Great with almost any food, from sushi to salmon to BBQ!
