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
