Tasting Notes: The River Stone Malbec 
Rosé may have been dialled back from '11' for the 2013 vintage, lightening the colour and intensity slightly, but it remains one of the bolder blush wines available in BC. Now more of a cherry Kool-Aid colour, the wine opens with a rush of raspberry, blood orange and light bay leaf aromas. The juicy palate follows with plump, pomegranate, strawberry-kiwi and pink-grapefruit flavours offset with cran-apple acidity. The finish is dry and moderate with lingering mineral and spice notes. Enjoy this fun wine in its youth. Drink 2014-2016.
