Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The color is delicate pink. The nose is fresh with hints of scented flowers (geranium, pansy, peppermint) and citrus fruit appeal (cedar, raspberry). On the palate, the wine delivers lovely and sweet notes of cherries and strawberries. The freshness given by the right acidity stimulates the palate. The finish is clean and persistent.

Delicious as an aperitif, serve with crudités and fresh cheeses, white meat and light cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"Light onion skin-pink color; this is much less red than the excellent '07 vintage. Pretty floral, strawberry and redcurrant nuances on the bright nose. Enters fresh, showing delicate pink peppercorn and wild strawberry flavors and a saline note. Finishes simple and lively, with a hint of almond flower."

Probably the best rose wine I have had ever. Not to dry, or too sweet.
