TASTING NOTE: Rich caramelized sugar and black plum aromas take a zesty turn on the palate of this dry rosé. Full in body, it has spry and crisply concentrated blackberry and currant flavors. The finish is long, accented by lavender and a delightfully chalky tone. Drink now-2021. Editors' Choice. Score - 91 (Anna Lee Iijima, Wine Enthusiast, July 1, 2018) Price $ 19.95
