Wine Review: This pale salmon colored wine opens with a tangerine and strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, fresh, and crisp. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tangerine with notes of strawberry and a faint hint of grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely. This Rose will be a nice summer sipper to pair with shrimp cocktail by the pool. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This lovely rose displays enticing aromas of fresh-picked strawberries and summer watermelon, along with hints of lemon zest and wildflowers. On the palate, it is bright and elegant, with a refreshing underlying acidity that adds poise and definition to the vibrant fruit flavors.
