This is made from 100% Pinot Noir. It has a deep ruby/orange color, clear and bright. A bit darker than typical roses. On the palate, there are strawberries, cherry powdered candy (li-a-maid?), with a slight tea and gravel. Medium bodied. Lovely texture. On the palate, the strawberries come thru with some red apple notes and underlying gravel. A bit of orange candy on the finish along with a slightly bitter orange pith note. Tasted over two nights, it was better on night two which is rare for a Rose. This is concentrated. It drinks great on its own and will work well with lighter foods or salmon. Drink over the next couple of years. If it matters, this is a gay owned winery that utilizes sustainable practices in their Oak Knoll vineyard.
