Rosé time! Green notes on the nose and palate. I'm guessing 6-7 % RS? It's a Cab Franc, so green notes make sense, but gets in the way of the crispness that Rosé should express.

Nice, pretending to be supercool, but for me not so interesting. Will be great with food, but I wouldn't choose it itself

Very tasty, juicy, with medium body and nice finish. Floral and mineral notes.

A good edge crisp acidity and clinging finish, so much more than the southern rose this vintage with seared tuna and roasted corn salsa it worked

A little bit lighter than I expected. Crisp and clean, great drinkable rose.
