Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before opening. Crystal clear salmon color. Strawberry, cherry and raspberry aromas turn into a real WOW taste with powerful ripe fruit flavors, lively crisp acidity and wonderful sumptuous mineral that carry all the way through the long dry finish that ends light and slightly citrus. So RICH and FLAVORFUL, it’s just a perfect summer-time sipping wine. If your not into rose yet, this would be a GREAT one to start with…it has it all!!! We put it into our Quality Wine at a Bargain Price category.

    She said: Apricot color, clear, no formed legs. Pleasant red berry aroma and more full developed similar taste. Slightly creamy mouth feel with substantial body and acidity. The finish continues the flavors, but ends with slight tart and acid notes. Nice with the nuts and sipping alone and I would buy it again. Definitely a bargain wine at $14.
