Winemaker's Notes

A refreshing dry rosé from the heart of Provence. Bright red berry and mint aromas with a supple yet dry and crisp finish. Very versatile and matches perfectly with grilled white meats, seafood, dry cheeses and salads. Enjoy!

Critical Acclaim

This mouthwatering rose-a blend of cabernet sauvignon, syrah, cinsault and Grenache-is juicy yet elegant, with a orange and cherry flavors carried in a clean line by vibrant acidity. Bring out the saline undertones with a bacon-infused clam risotto."
