Nose has green apple (matchstick cut), crushed strawberry, raspberry juice, green apple peel, cut green table grape, minor orange peel, saltbox and chalk dust.

Palate has raspberry/cherry juice combo, green melon, partially dried cherry, Clementine zest, dried strawberry and minor salinity. Decent finish length, medium acidity, needs some more time to come together, should be a great wine with a year or two of patience.

Deeper salmon color than most Rosés; strawberry on the nose with maybe some straw, hay or grass mixed in. More body than average Rosé with clear strawberry flavor and maybe some pear or apple (touch of sweetness). Then the alcohol level cuts in for acidity. A touch harsh down the throat. Pretty good- would like some food with it to balance the acidity.
