Wine Review: This pinkish coral colored wine opens with a mild strawberry and red cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild watermelon with a hint of strawberry and red cherry. The finish is dry and it's favors and acidity drift away nicely. This Rose would pair well with steamed mussels. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We couldn't be happier with our first release of this quintessential summer quaffing wine. It carries all the best traits we hoped for: lively acidity to make it fresh, beautiful floral aromas and bright red fruit for juicy fun, and a streak of feisty cranberry and watermelon. The nose leads with white flowers, roses, watermelon Jolly Ranchers, and a bit of strawberry/banana creaminess. The first sip is both bracing and round, with fresh strawberry, melon, and blood orange. A lingering finish of cranberry, pomegranate and rosehips leaves you wanting more. Pair it with tasty appetizers, especially those from the sea, such as oysters or Thai shrimp bruschetta.
