Wine Review: This faint coral colored wine from the Russian River is one of the better Roses that we have covered this spring. It opens with an appealing strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its fruit flavors and acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty blend of strawberry and watermelon with notes of nicely integrated mild minerality. I also detected hints of Maraschino cherry and lime in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Rose is will be a crowd pleaser because it is easy to quaff. This bottle will not last long. Enjoy it with shrimp cocktail. Cheers - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
