Chilled before drinking. Clear, faint salmon color. Lite red berry and citrus aromas. Smooth entry than a zesty and spicy mouthfeel, light to medium body and a 100-grit texture. Ripe strawberry, raspberry and tart current flavors. Quite crisp acidity (actually it was a dominating characteristic), with a pronounced spicy finish. As it warmed with each pour a sweetness began to subvert the ripe fruit taste, but the real plus was the subtle taste change the wine went through when first hitting the tongue to the end of the finish. If your not into Provincial Rose this is certainly inexpensive, drinkable and has some characteristic Rose tastes and it may be a good choice for grocery store Rose. However, $10.00 and two thumbs up says it all!!!
