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.
