Light siam color. Aromas and flavors of dried cranberries and cherries, cassis jam, watermelon agua fresca, and tomato jelly with a lightly tannic, vibrant, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a tingling, refreshing, medium-length finish conveying shades of crisp radish and creme with no oak flavor. A toothsome and highly pairable off-dry Rosé; serve with a slight chill and pair with summer meals al fresco.

Off-Dry Rose

Off-dry wines are slightly sweet wines that are great for sipping on their own or throughout a meal. They're different from dessert wines in that they contain considerably less residual sugar and have only a softly perceptible sweetness.
