The nose is very floral, with near gardenia-power white flowers, with underlying aromas of ripe peaches. The palate shows wax and citrus fruits, lemon juice and lemon pith. The lemon lingers on the finish, transitioning to hints of roasted almonds as it fades. DH.
Overall feel is very lush, with silky tannins, moderate acids, and a long finish that ends where it started, with violets scents lingering. Well-priced for the quality, drink this and spend the money you saved on prime filet to match. Highly recommended. DH.

The color is bright pink, really very pretty, clear and bright. Aromas of dried strawberries and a bit of cherry waft up from the glass. On the palate, strawberries with a twist of lemon, a faint hint of blackberry on the mid-palate, with a mid-length finish. Acids are good, tannins very light but clearly present. This is a pleasant full-bodied rose that pairs well with anything from roast chicken to vegetarian chili. Recommended. DH
