Quite high acidity, which I really enjoyed. A very nice choice for food. Would be great with light cheeses.

Light salmon pink in color. Strawberry note in nose. Strawberry, citrus and herbal notes in mouth with some minerality and a touch of tongue coating astringency on finish. An American icon, a dry rose pioneer in California, good value, sip or dine this summer with a bottle or two

Cherry, strawberry, watermelon, cream, kiwi, lime and hints of vanilla. Great acidity and balance.

I look forward to this wine all year, every year. It's about half Grenache with smatterings of Grenache Blanc, Mourvèdre and Carignane. The light pink color is very Provençal, and the nose falls into line with it. Aromas of strawberry and watermelon are in the forefront, with plenty of herbal influence. On the palate, it drinks more red than pink, with cherry, currant and licorice on display. The acidity is plainly perfect, and a nutty savoriness just peeks through and lingers on the finish.

Another solid performer from Randall Graham. Smells like grapefruit, tastes like Starburst. Nice mid palate viscosity.

Like all Bonny Doon, reliably sophisticated. Not a touch sweet. Toothsome. Pair with food. dp

Very much enjoyed this rosé. Bright acidity and strawberry notes galore. Would recommend on its own or paired with food. Only paid $12 at the store for this find.
