Wine Review: This light pink colored wine from Etude is very good. It opens with a Maraschino cherry bouquet with a hint of wild strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and refined. The flavor profile is a very tasty mineral influenced watermelon with notes of Maraschino cherry. I also detected some hints of lime and ruby grapefruit towards the end. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Rose is a nice summer option. It will be quaffed if served slightly chilled on a hot day. I would pair it with a grilled mahi mahi sandwich with a roasted red pepper aioli. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A lovely rose gold trending toward salmon hue is distinctive in the glass, leading to aromas of fresh cut strawberry, white peaches and pleasant floral aromas of tree blossoms. Flavors are similar, adding blood orange, watermelon, nectarine and cherry. Vibrant and lifted acidity, some minerality and a lingering, quenching mouthfeel.

Organic status: not organic
