Wine Review: This bright pink colored Rose from the Russian River is on the elegant side. It opens with an attractive red cherry, rose petal and tangerine bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic, delicate and goes down easy. The flavor profile is a juicy mineral infused strawberry with notes of watermelon. I also detected hints of tangerine. The finish is dry and very refreshing. I would serve this quaffing Rose slightly chilled on a hot summer day by the pool. It won’t last long. I would pair it with a grilled mahi-mahi sandwich. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The beautifully colored fresh and vibrant Rose of Pinot Noir has aromas and flavors of strawberry, white peach and jasmine. Brilliant and bright with fresh acidity and a wonderful lasting juicy finish. Enjoy this Rose of Pinot Noir with goat cheese, fresh seafood dishes and summer salads.
