Amber salmon color. Aromas and flavors of strawberry cream, raspberry nougat, strawberry watermelon juice, and cucumber with a silky, crisp, dry medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish that shows accents of red sweet tarts candies, watermelon hard candy, and tomato vine with no oak flavor. A pleasant and approachable berry-forward Rose to sip all day.

Rose

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).
