54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 6% Chardonnay
The color is light and shiny, like new copper. An elegant nose of beautiful floral and slight citrus notes fills the glass along with fine fresh fruit and a hint of honeysuckle. The wine has wonderful texture and the integrated lees fill the mouth with creamy yeast and subtle ripe fruit. There is a fantastic overall balance achieved by the soft acidity and fine minerality. This is a sophisticated wine with a smooth yet playful layered, long finish. This rosé is very versatile, can be paired with an array of different food, and also will show nicely with age.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve slightly chilled. This versatile, food-friendly wine pairs well with most foods. Especially promising pairings include smoked salmon, poached or grilled lobster or shrimp, marinated meats and soft cheeses. Hold it until Thanksgiving and you’ll have a special—and delicious—surprise for your turkey!
