Light Siam violet color. Fruity, roasted aromas and flavors of grilled cherries and apples, floral spice, and buttery nougat with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a sleek, complex, medium-long pickled and grilled melons, pomegranate chutney on rye toast, smoked nuts, and banana chips finish with fine, crunchy tannins. A complex and very nuanced rose with zesty acidity and great, lightly smoky varietal character and terroir.

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).
