Wine Review: This coral colored Rose made from Pinot Noir opens with a mild strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, nicely balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild maraschino cherry with hints of gentle minerality, tangerine and faint strawberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and well managed acidity linger and last for a while. This Rose stood up well with our spicy salmon topped salad at the Red Raven in Acton. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Light salmon in color with hints of rose petals on the nose. Strawberry shortcake with a blood orange glaze and just picked raspberries dance across your tongue with grapefruit on the finish. Our Dry Rose is a perfect pairing with pork tacos with mango salsa or your summer barbecues. Enjoy!
