Wine Review: A deep pink peach color. The nose was fresh with notes of sour cherry and ripe melon with a hint of oak. Light to medium bodied and crisp. It is also refreshing and mouthwatering with faint apricot and sour cherry flavors. The finish is prolonged and pleasant. A very versatile summer picnic/barbecue wine. We would pair it with cheese and crackers, Caesar salad, grilled chicken, or sushi. A great value for $10! – Stuart and Karen

Winemaker Notes: Our limited release Rose is intensely aromatic, bursting with ripe red fruit flavors, delicate minerality and a touch of floral. I drew inspiration from dry Provencal-style Rose's when crafting this refreshing blend with a bright, crisp finish.
