Wine Review: This light pink colored Rose from Cakebread opens with a fragrant and appealing light orange and strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is tasty mild mineral infused red cherry with hints faint plum. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. This Rose would be very nice at the beach on a hot summer day. I would have it at dinner with baked stuffed shrimp. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This vintage of Vin de Porche displays vibrantly fresh Bing cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas complemented by hints of rose petal and floral spice. Bright and lively on the palate, with lip-smacking berry and red and black cherry flavors, the wine offers delightful citrus, mineral and light spice tones on its long, crisp finish. This bone-dry rose makes both a fine aperitif wine and an excellent companion to seafood and chicken, country ham, summer salads and spicy Latin and Asian dishes.
