Wine Review: This dark pink colored wine opens up with a very inviting mild Maraschino cherry bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, a little acidic and smooth as silk. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused red cherry with hints of strawberry and faint watermelon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. This Rose is a keeper and one of our top finds. I would pair it with grilled mahi mahi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Dianthus is a rich pink, like fresh-pressed strawberry juice. The nose shows watermelon, plum rose petal and more strawberries. The mouth is rich, with great acids and a powerful floral jasmine element. The finish is long and clean. Pair it with Mediterranean cuisine, Spanish tapas, preparations with garlic and olive oil... or just enjoy it outside on a sunny day.

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.
