Wine Review: This pale salmon colored wine opens with a fragrant orange and watermelon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and round in the mouth. The flavor profile is a tasty tangerine and watermelon blend with notes of gentle minerality. I also detected a hint of lemon in the end. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This crowd pleasing Rose with be popular at your summer cookouts. Pair with salmon burgers off the grill. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Patelin de Tablas Rose has a nose of the wild strawberry, rose petals and citrus. In the mouth, it shows the generous red fruit of Grenache kept clean by vibrant acidity and a spiced citrus note that comes out on the long finish. Drink, chilled, in the next year or two.
