This is a Rose made in the style of Bandol, that is, a heartier style of Rose. It is 48% Mourvedre. Light ruby/orange in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries and slight orange notes. On the palate, this is slightly viscous with cherries and a slight red licorice note. Good acidity. Nice finish. A very pleasant rose that will work well on its own or with all sorts of food off the grill. Drink over the next few years.
