Khaki orange color. Fruity aromas and flavors of strawberry jelly on buttered wheat toast, tamarind, and nut brittle with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium body and an even, compelling, medium-long finish displaying accents of watermelon granita, almond meal, and fresh herbs with no oak flavor. A very attractive and uncomplicated rose with pure and rather irresistible strawberry flavors.

Serve in a Rosé Wine Glass
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).
