Bright light ruby color. Aromas and flavors of green berries, sun dried leather, crushed gravel, and wood smoke and lemon pith with an soft, dry full body and an interesting, quick finish with woody, earthy tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A delicately smoky rosé with great length and a rich midpalate.

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).
