TASTING NOTE: The vineyards where this 100% Pinot Noir rosé was grown endured a major earthquake during the growing season and this lively pink wine, showing regal poise befitting its name, delivers subtle strawberry, lemon and floral notes, with plenty of acidity giving it lip-smacking crispness. Pair it with grilled lamb kebabs. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2017) Price $ 19.95
