Sunburst amber color. Aromas and flavors of herbal berry compote, thyme honey on peaches, spiced nuts, and caramel rice cake with a supple, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a sleek, captivating, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of pickled melon, clementine and Meyer lemon, and fleur de sel with fine, well-integrated, chewy, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A very nice savory rosé that whets the appetite.

Rosé refers to a wine made when red grapes are given slight skin contact to produce a blush, light copper, salmon or pink color. Rosés range from bone-dry to medium- sweet and are made in most major wine producing countries. Among the most famous examples are Tavel from France’s Rhone Valley, numerous offerings from Provence in southern France as well as several excellent versions from Puglia in southern Italy.

Often thought of as a summer wine – in this case, a substitute for red wine when the weather is hot – they can be enjoyed year round. The drier versions, of course, are meat for food pairings; recommended matches include chicken salad, vegetables and seafood such as tuna or salmon (especially with a rich rosé made from Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir).
