Rich silvery pink color. Floral, attractive aromas and flavors of blossoms, berries and cherries in cream, praline, and pickled strawberry with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a graceful, amusing, medium-long finish conveying notes of fresh raspberries, violet water, and clementine with a suggestion of oak flavor. A vibrant and attractive rose pleaser that will quench and delight.

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).
