Not a fair tasting-this bottle was on its 3rd day but impressed that it still held up.

A little fruit. But not too sweet. Nice finish.

This rose is gorgeous.. Beautiful notes of strawberry and stone fruit with a slightly creamy palate. Very elegant rose when I feel many have much brighter citrus notes and less round of a body. Fantastic wine.

Amazing rosé, tropical profile of white peach, tangerine, touch of raspberry. Beautiful silky, almost thick mouth feel, candied strawberry, rose petal and some stone fruit, well balanced, great overall just the alcohol is a bit high.

I wish I could say I liked this... At 14.8% ACV this rosé seems better for getting hammered than anything else. The aromas are pleasant but on the palate this tastes quite one dimensional. Unripe strawberries? As suggested by the high alcohol/sugar content this wine is very viscous which I didn't love. I know several people that enjoy this rosé though so maybe it's just me? At $28 a pop I figured I'd give others a heads up though.
