Wine Review: This deep pink colored Rose opens with a watermelon rind, ruby grapefruit, strawberry, and old shoe leather bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round, crisp, and lively. The flavor profile is a tangy ruby grapefruit with notes of lime and watermelon Jolly Rancher candy. We also detected hints of strawberry rhubarb, tangerine, and stony minerality. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity linger for a while. This Rose will appeal to fans of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The Tasting Panel would pair this Rose with a blackened swordfish or with a Bahamian conch chowder. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The wine shows a deeper pink, toward garnet, than we aimed for, and has a rich comfortable hue. Floral nose, flawless in its purity. This wine captures the draw of Cabernet Sauvignon grape at its core. Very smooth, with bright and round acidity; and fully mouth-coating. Long finish, with subtle rich tannins. One of a kind! Sorry we did not produce more!
