Wine Review: This pale pink colored Rose from Oregon opens with a very inviting maraschino cherry and ginger ale bouquet with hints of watermelon and orange peel twist. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity that is nicely integrated. The palate presence is fresh and clean. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral influenced strawberry and lime blend with notes of saline and red raspberry. I also detected hints of yellow grapefruit in the aftertaste. The finish is dry and refreshing. Given its low level of alcohol at 12.5%, this is an easy quaffer at the beach or pool. With food, I would enjoy it with ice chilled shrimp - hold the cocktail sauce. Enjoy - Ken
