Fruity and forward, this light and refreshing rosé shows a mix of watermelon and strawberry fruit. The acids are lively and not at all sour. All in all, this is a fine, anytime summer quaffer.
This is a pleasant, easy-drinking wine with forward, fruity flavors of cranberry and plum. Though aging in 15% new French oak is listed, it's the fruit rather than the barrel flavors that stand out here. It might be compared favorably to an Oregon Gamay.
The result is a wine with a deep, glowing garnet color, and inviting aromatics of dark berries like boysenberry and black raspberry, earth, and baking spice. The wine is bright on the front palate showing initial flavors of cranberry that evolve to tart cherry and earth with structured tannins on mid-palate and finish.
This Pinot Noir is the perfect companion while making dinner.
