Wine & Spirits
"This has the bright savor of a strawberry dipped in sea salt. It's light, with a hint of smokiness to balance the fruit. Together with the fine bubbles, that fruit savor will clean up after cured sausages and other charcuterie."
There's a smoky underpinning to this firm rosé, with the lively bead carrying delicate flavors of white raspberry, toast, orange peel and ground ginger. Drink now through 2019.
Salmon skin color. Energetic, floral nose offers finely etched apple and pomegranate scents, along with delicate mineral and jasmine nuances. Dry, stony and fresh, with precise, fairly deep pear, rhubarb and subtle red berry flavors. Finishes on a dusty, mineral note, with very good length.
Bitter cherries with some yeastiness give this wine a rich, while tight, character. It has a touch of vanilla, ripe red-berry fruits and an almond aftertaste. Drink now.
