Wine Review: This is a most unique and tasty rose, made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is an intense cranberry red color with an almost blue rim. The very fruity bouquet had strawberry, watermelon, and cherry aromas along with pretty white florals. It is medium-minus bodied, with refreshing moderate acidity, a good balance, and a smooth and round mouthfeel. I found it surprisingly layered, with new flavors found with each sip, including strawberry, raspberry, and tangerine, along with some cherry-cola, clove, blueberry, and almond hints. There are gentle tannins in a very extended finish that is dry with stony minerality. This Rose could be sipped on its own or paired with cedar plank grilled salmon. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: The wine shows a deeper pink, toward garnet, than we aimed for, and has a rich comfortable hue. Floral nose, flawless in its purity. This wine captures the draw of Cabernet Sauvignon grape at its core. Very smooth, with bright and round acidity; and fully mouth-coating. Long finish, with subtle rich tannins. One of a kind! Sorry we did not produce more! Perfect when lightly chilled for any warm spring and summer event, such as a Wednesday.
