Tasting Notes: This rosé is so dark it's only recognizable as a chilled blush by the beads of condensation on your glass. A big, bold bouquet of plum, cherry nib candy, stewed strawberry and peach pit aromas spill from the glass. The front-loaded palate, packed with red fruit flavours, is fairly full for a rosé with off-dry levels of sugar (mostly) off-set by tangy acidity keeping the mouth feel fresh. This wine pushes the envelop of what would be considered a traditional rosé - for better, for worse. Drink now-2014.
