Pepper, herbs and black fruit on the nose are followed by simple flavors of spice, violet and berry on the palate. Spicy with a spin of brooding fruit. Not terribly poised but an interesting sip.
A lightweight Pinot that’s actually marketed as a rosé, this wine nevertheless manages to pack in decent flavors of apple skin, red berries and cinnamon, capped off by some leathery, meaty notes.
For fans of sweet wine, this sugary rose will please, but fans of drier rose will find this to be a bit of a candy bomb. A blend of chardonnay (around 75%) and merlot (around 25%), it has aromas of peach and strawberry, and those flavors, combined with a bit of acidity, are playful on the palate. It's a basic wine but pleasant.
Raspberry and strawberry play on the palate, backed by a good acidity and some weight and complexity on the tongue to balance it out. The finish is good and the overall impression is favorable.
Hints of spice and Morello cherries entice on the nose of this pleasantly dry rosé made from Merlot grapes. The palate is clean with decent red fruit flavors, but there’s a hollowness overall, and a hint of tomato water on the finish that detracts.
