Wine Review: This pale pink colored wine from McIntyre opens with a faint strawberry and watermelon bouquet with a hint of kiwi. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild maraschino cherry with notes of watermelon. I also detected hints of clementine and faint minerality. The finish is refreshing and linger nicely. This Rose would pair very nicely with a mahi-mahi burger. – Ken (SIP Certified)

Winemaker Notes: Its salmon color foreshadows the stunning aromas of a fresh floral nose featuring lavender, stone fruits, peach and rose. While the bouquet is open and forthright, the texture is a bit more mysterious. One moment it is zesty and earthy; the next it is bold, plush and tart. The finish, as you might expect, is pure, dry and satisfying.
