Wine Review: This light salmon colored Rose from Washington State opens with an orange and strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tangy tangerine with notes of minerality and strawberry. I also detected hints of lemon towards the end. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this nice summer styled Rose with shrimp cocktail. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Nice clean fruity flavors and bright acidity. Watermelon, orange blossom and strawberry aromas lead into a clean crisp palate of wild strawberry and a finish of bright floral and fruit.

Organic status: not organic

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.
