Tasted 2014 in 2018: cheese rind, almond, and licorice. Bitter aftertaste, along with tempered acidity at around medium. Limestone soil.

Needs more acid. Great Flavors. But creamier than I would like.

Salmon color with lifted red berry, melon, blood orange, wet stone, ocean breeze and a hint of damp dusty earth aromas. On the palate it's medium-bodied, layered and fresh with fine concentration and mixed melon, stone fruit, red berry, flavors with and herbal note and a very giving mineral driven dry finish. Great value at $22!

Bra bröstvärmare vid första snön. Plommon, chark, bläck, diverse mörka bär och överlag väldigt torr. Alkoholen bra integrerad.

Last of our case of 2014. Faded salmon colour. Herbs and hay on the nose. Appealing. Generous, wide palate, a touch of sweetness. More herbs and garlic spears. Short glycerin finish. Drink up.

Yes way rose! Served with pesto, arugula turkey burgers with nut/dried fruit faro. Crisp, balanced rose.

Well-balanced rose, with a bit more body than the usual Provençal. Paired very well with the ratatouille.
