The grapes for this wine were sourced from Paso Robles. Once the bottle is opened, you’ll notice a buttery scent and the light red color as you pour your first glass.  The cherry flavors are quite nice and the wine is medium bodied and has aged rather nicely. The fruit flavors are well balanced and though it is dry it is not too dry, making it a very lovely and easy option for pairing with food or enjoying on its own.  Little, if any, degradation was detected during tasting and was still good two days later (with a vacuum pump, of course).  Just about any dish would pair well with this Rosé. We even enjoyed some mild cheese with ours and it paired well with this one!
