Wine Review: This light pink colored wine made from Pinot Noir opens with a tangerine and strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry and tangerine blend with hints of white pepper and watermelon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for a while. I would pair this Rose with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This quaffable Rose leads with delicious notes of white peach, nectarine, red cherry, and candied strawberry, while being balanced by more subtle cantaloupe and aromatic orange zest. The body is clean and refreshing with crisp acidity. Pairs well with oysters on half shell with Rose’ mignonette or salmon or tuna sashimi.

Organic status: not organic
