Wine Review: This pinkish coral colored wine from Justin opens with a red cherry and ginger ale bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, delicate and fresh. The flavor profile is a watermelon and light red cherry blend with notes of stony minerality and white pepper. I also detected hints of mild strawberry and nectarine. The finish is dry and quite refreshing. I would serve this quaffer Rosé slightly chilled at beach this summer. With food, pair it with shrimp scampi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Bright and clear with a pale copper color, silver highlights, and moderate tears in the glass.
Aroma: Very aromatic with ripe red apple and notes of green apple and pear, with violet and white flower notes, dried herbs, and an attractive, slightly peppery note.
Palate: Medium-bodied and dry with a very attractive mix of ripe red and green apple, red berry fruit, and melon on entry and subtle chamomile and floral notes appearing on the midpalate. The clean finish features fresh fruit, floral/herbal notes, and a mineral texture.
Food Pairings: The 2023 Rosé is an extremely versatile and refreshing wine that is great year-round on its own or paired with just about any type of food. Enjoy it with a fresh green salad with strawberries, fennel, radish, sugar snap peas, and walnuts in a Meyer lemon vinaigrette.
