Wine Review: This orangeish rose colored wine opens with a mild cherry bouquet with a hint of wood and Slim Jim. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild red cherry and faint strawberry blend with notes of mild minerality. I also detected a touch of watermelon, Slim Jim and vanilla cream towards the end. The finish is dry and its fades away nicely. I would pair this Rose with a grilled mahi-mahi sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale pink and full-bodied, this enticing dry rose is brimming with luscious berry aromas. Flavors of raspberry, strawberry and cherry emerge on a juicy, fresh palate that leads to a long, satisfying finish on this food friendly wine.

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.
