Medium salmon-pink, fine mousse. Delightful light yeast, fruit, and toast in aroma which intensifies in the flavor. The finish is moderately long with raspberry and tart blackberry and mineral-citric edges. The fruit becomes more pronounced with food, especially with a great pairing like lobster. This season the rosé is packaged with a pink zippered cover which keeps a chilled bottle cooled to the correct temperature for drinking, for a good two hours. For more info see Becky Sue’s blog.
