Right away you can tell this rose is richer and more caramelized. Spice and herbaceous elements accompany the fruit. Palate is multi faceted showing glazed strawberry and pie crust, with balancing acidity and boasting a full, velvety mouthfeel. Fabulous long finish.

Well, I drank it all before I could take a picture of the bottle, so there's that.
Love this natural, sustainable producer. This is an intentional rosé, and boy can you tell. Elegant, floral, stone fruits.

Chalky, flinty, pink grapefruit up front and strawberry on the finish. Love this light style new world rosé.

Strawberry, cherry, lime zest, slate and hints of apricot. Great acidity and balance.

Thought I'd try some rose on this warm and balmy weekend, aka "heat wave". Good idea. Nice acidity, dry enough, light. And a lot more complex than I expected.

The wine is an onion type of color that’s really only slightly tinted. The nose brings that springtime feeling into focus with strawberry, cherry and an array of light spices. The smell of fruit comes with stems and all, a nice, savory green note. The palate is as lovely as you want a rosé to be, as you want spring to be. Fresh cherry, strawberry and raspberry are hit with a nuttiness and a playful acidity that qualifies as “food friendly.” The savory salinity is abundant, as we have come to expect from this label. The finish is long-lasting. Pair it with grilled seafood, roasted chicken, hummus, or just a handful of almonds for a real taste treat.

I thought it opened up really nicely after a while. Delicious and great with food too.
