Note: For Mothers Day the Undercurrent Restaurant had a delicious three course virtual dinner served with three different wines. This wine was served with the second course.
Chilled before drinking. Clear, pale pink color. Light fruity aroma that’s dominated with strawberry. Smooth, dry and intense mouthfeel, quite a light body and a 150-grit texture. Raspberry and cherry flavors with intermittent red licorice and spicy clove. Citrusy crisp acidity and a medium length sour plum tasting finish. Really a quite credible Rosé, but maybe the best combination of charcuterie we’ve ever had. There was an interesting balance to this wine…acidity was fresh, but well below the typical edgy acidity of most Rosé; the tannins were practically nonexistent and the flavors well in balance with the rest of the wine. We were really taken with the charcuterie plate and the wine paired very well with it. In the end we called it a pretty nice California Rosé.
