Vivid orange-pink. Smoky red berries and fresh flowers on the highly perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Rich but energetic and light on its feet, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a bracing jolt of orange peel. Toasty leesy nuances emerge with air and carry through a long finish tinged with spices and flowers.

Juicy red fruit flavors of fresh strawberries and cream saturate this young wine. The flavors cascade from nuts to fruits, the fruit sweet, the wine savory and bright. A superrich, generous rosé for duck prosciutto.

A fresh, lively rosé, with a light grain to the texture and notes of juicy white cherry and raspberry fruit mixing with hints of almond, smoke and spice. Citrusy acidity leads to the lightly chalky finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,000 cases made.
