Wine Review: This light salmon colored wine from Paul Hobbs opens with wet stone and mild red cherry bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly effervescent and mildly acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused watermelon with hints of strawberry. The finish is rather dry and its flavors and acidity linger for quite some time. I would serve this Rose chilled with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A radiant rose hue like Himalayan salt, this Rose has aromas of white tea, tangerine blossom, and Rainier cherry. The intense linear texture leads to a juicy palate with expressive flavors of hibiscus, jicama, white peach, and oyster shell. The crisp finish is highlighted by steely acidity with hints of citrus and sea breeze.

Your comments on this wine:





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.
