Tasting Profile

Look:

A beautiful coppery-toned ruby in the glass, with a slight glint of salmon pink.

Smell:

Really lovely aromatics, with a slight mineral earthiness on top of the expected notes of red fruit. Fresh wild strawberry, bright red cherry, and guava are paired with quince, orange blossom, dried rose petal, and the previously mentioned earthy minerality.

Taste:

A well balanced and juicy flavor profile, with generous notes of fresh cherry, watermelon, and Meyer lemon leading the way. These fruity elements are quickly followed by orange oil, lime flower, and hints of white flower petals.

Finish:

With a great balance between fresh fruit flavors and light acidity, this is the perfect summertime rosé.

Pairing:

Fresh seafood salad with avocado.
