The color is beautiful, pink with hints of copper, clear and bright. Strawberries with a light sprinkle of sweet cream waft up from the glass. Strawberry is joined by citrus on the palate, sweet tangerine and tart lemon, with a clean grapefruit-pith bite. The finish lingers nicely. This is a bright, clean, fresh rose with plenty of body from the pinot. Drink with dark meat baked chicken with peaches. Highly Recommended. 90 points.
