Wine Review: This dark pink colored Rose from Tavel opens with a mild orange and red cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic, mouthwatering and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tangerine with notes of peach. I also detected hints of watermelon, white pepper, spice drop, and strawberry mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Rose is a nice wine to serve chilled at the beach this summer. Pair it with Bavarian Weisswurst off the grill. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: An appealing Rose with a brilliant pink color. A rich nose showing red berry tones such as strawberry and gooseberry. Fresh on the palate, with persisting citrus notes. Well rounded body and a long, structured finish.
