Review date: June 23, 2017

Wine Review: This Rose from Susana Balbo is consistently very good. We found the 2016 as deep rose colored and opens with a salted caramel, floral and mandarin orange bouquet. On the palate, we found it to be medium bodied, smooth, rich, and well-balanced. We described its flavors as tasty honey crisp apples and cherries. The finish is nicely acidic and refreshing. We would pair this Rose with Thai food. - Karen and Stuart

Winemaker Notes: A beautiful, deep, vibrant rose color. Has a surprising amount of body for a rose wine, and beautiful aromas of fresh, ripe wild strawberries. On the palate, the flavors of strawberries and young cherries come rushing in, accompanied by some spice notes and a clean, dry finish. This is the perfect chicken wine and a charming companion to mildly spicy Asian cuisine.

Organic status: not organic
