Wine Review: This pale coral colored Rosè of Pinot Noir from Merriam opens with a tangerine and watermelon bouquet with hints of peach. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, bright and fresh. The flavor profile is a watermelon and chalky minerality blend with notes of maraschino cherry and white pepper. I also detected hints of saline and lime zest. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would serve this refreshing Rosè slightly chilled at the pool or beach this summer. With food, it paired well with steamed mussels. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The blushing Rosè of Pinot Noir, best served cold, gradually opens its delicate flavors into a vibrant bouquet of roses and violets as it gently warms in the glass. Its slight weight on the tongue adds depth to its texture, making it the ideal companion for summer afternoons. A zing of drying sensation tantalizes the palate and is accompanied by fresh strawberries, making you want to go back and take another sip.
