Nice and fresh. Particularly Good for RR rose’. Probably a vintage thing.

Last of the three Rosés tasted today. Beautiful link pink hue, almost magenta. Fruitest on the nose of the three with layers of red berries, bright cherries and watermelon. Even some gummy worms. Moderate acidity (6.5/10) and lively on the palate with tons of tropical, citrus and fruity notes. Some grapefruit, unripe strawberries, lime and wet stones in the finish. Crisp light bodied with a long well balanced finish. Our favorite PN rosé to date and stunning QPR. Drink till 2018.

Pours coral in color. Effervescence in the glass but not in the palate. ON THE NOSE: strawberry, strawberry and Mir strawberry. ON THE PALATE: strawberry and cherry and minerality. It's a light bodied with a short finish. Well balanced acidity.

Love rosé made from Pinot Noir and this one's great. Perfectly refreshing strawberry with a hint of stone.

Finishing leftovers from Saturday. I have posted this previously and was not impressed per the level of white flowers on the palate.
This bottle same vintage is so much better, softer profile on the WF! Not sure why. 🤷‍♀️
Just wanted to present a fair rating; post 2 bottles of good vs. 1 bad.
