Brilliant orange-pink. Intense, mineral-accented strawberry, cherry pit and blood orange aromas, along with a sexy floral overtone. Concentrated red fruit and lavender pastille flavors are supported by a spine of juicy acidity that adds definition and back-end cut. Closes very long and focused, featuring resonating minerality and a lingering floral quality.

Serious Rose once again. Great nose and complex aromatics, good intensity and significant finish. Big Rose.
