Siam color. Aromas and flavors of wild cherries, honeyed tomato, and aloe with a supple, soft, dryish light-to-medium body and a medium-length finish that shows suggestions of nuts, cherry pit and stem, and birch bark with dusty, barky tannins and light oak flavor. A dry, earthy and delicate rose for the table.

Bordeaux Rose

Wine Glass Rose.jpg
Serve in a Rosé Wine Glass
Bordeaux Rosé, is a wine made from red Bordeaux varieties in which a slight blush or pink color is derived from brief skin contact. As with most rosés from quality regions, the wines are dry and have appealing young cherry and strawberry fruit; they are popular during the summer when the weather is hot. Consume them with salads or lighter poultry.

The most famous estates in Bordeaux do not make a rosé, rather it is large firms that produce small quantities; as these wines are not in great demand (other French rosés such as Tavel or those from Provence are much more complex), prices are inexpensive.
