Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, pale salmon color. Earthy strawberry and raspberry aromas. Smooth, almost creamy mouth-feel with VERY refreshing sliced strawberry and apple taste that continues through the long, slightly crisp finish. This is a WOW, WOW, WOW Rosé. Abundant flavors, perfect acidity and very food friendly…it’s a Rosé that should be bought by the case!!! It easily goes near the top of our Quality wine at a Bargain price category. A DELICIOUS Rosé that’s a FANTASTIC value.

    She said: Clear, pale salmon color with a bright apricot tint. Soft, pleasant aromas, pronounced berry flavors with a creamy mouth-feel and long smooth finish. This is a bit different than most other Rosé, which makes it more interesting and a pleasant diversion from the usual Rosé. It was delicious with the soup and baguette that I slathered with roasted garlic and at only $13.50 it is an extraordinary wine I would recommend and buy again…even at a higher price.
