Wine Review: This light pink colored Rose from the Finger Lakes opens with a wet stone and mild strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and delicate. The flavor profile is a tasty mild tangerine with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected a hint of strawberry and watermelon. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Rose is very food friendly and would pair nicely with shrimp cocktail. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Fresh and lively, food-friendly, and full of fruit. This zippy Rosé greets you with notes of blooming cherry blossoms and bright berries, all the way through a bright and dry finale. An adventure in every sip!
