Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Crystal clear, cherry red color. Lots of strawberry and raspberry aroma. A tad of sweetness in the abundant fruit taste that carries all the way through the long finish and ends with a tart dryness. Lots of body, great acidity and very easy drinking A great summer sipping Rosé and at only $10.80 it’s an OUTSTANDING value. At this price it’s a wine that should be on the top of every Rosé drinkers shopping list.

    She said: Deep cheery red color, clear, thin speedy legs. The color entices and the aroma pulls even more, but don’t get excited unless you want a very fruity taste bordering on sweet. I don’t traditionally like wines that have any sweetness, but I think this one is delicious because the sweetness is totally integrated into the wine as a whole. The taste has echoes of maraschino cherry juice that I adore but it goes above and/beyond without being overly sweet yet offering lots ripe cherry flavors mixed with strawberry and raspberry. The body is medium and the finish is long with lots of flavor. Absolutely delicious. It went well with the fruit but even better afterwards, but I would recommend it paired with a succulent fruit dessert. This is a true bargain wine and I would buy it again to drink alone or go with the right food.
