Wine Review: This strawberry colored Carignan based Rose from Carol Shelton is very nice and a great deal. It opens with a mild strawberry scented bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gentle strawberry and mineral blend with a faint hint of watermelon in the background. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This Rose is a perfect wine for the beach. It is very quaffable, nicely priced and goes down easy. Serve it slightly chilled and share it with friends. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Light cranberry color, juicy strawberry-watermelon fruit aromas, nice mineral, hint of pink grapefruit. Refreshingly crisp and dry. Great with almost any food, from sushi to salmon to BBQ!

Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
