Wine Review: This coral pink colored wine from Oregon opens with a strawberry and wet stone bouquet with hints of rose petals, watermelon, and tangerine. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is zesty, bright and fresh. The flavor profile is a white peach pit and stony minerality blend with notes of red cherry, green tea, and tobacco. I also detected some hints of watermelon and pink grapefruit. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this Rose slightly chilled with chilled shrimp cocktail. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dusty rose in color, the nose features lime peel, and pink grapefruit beside hints of dried mango and white flowers. The palate is both juicy and robust with flavors of strawberry, peach hard candy and lime meeting a pithy finish of pink grapefruit, sarsaparilla and rose petal.
