Wine Review: This light pink colored dry rose opens with a faint orange bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry with hints plum and Anjou pear. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine is a nice summer option to serve chilled at the beach. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Rose exhibits a beautiful pink color, tinged with a subtle salmon hue and coppered fuchsia edges. The aromas pop with wild strawberry, rose, cherry, subtle hibiscus and a touch of citrus, with underlying dried herb, crushed gravel and mineral tones. These bright fruit and savory flavors continue through the palate with great acidity that carries into the finish. Our goal is create a balance between fruit, savory and acid notes so that not one element is overly dominant.
