Wine Review: This dark coral colored wine from Riley’s Rows is very good. It opens with a very inviting Maraschino cherry and watermelon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. It is also quite juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced tangerine and Maraschino cherry with notes nectarine pit and lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Rose would pair nicely with chilled shrimp cocktail poolside this summer. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: My 2018 Rose has a bright nose of wild strawberries and ripe citrus. The palate reveals notes of Chanterais Melon and Blood Orange. My 2018 Riley’s Rows Rose is delightful on its own but has the character and depth of flavor to pair with food.
