Wine Enthusiast 89 - This full-flavored rose is principally Sangiovese. Packed with fresh flavors of strawberry, raspberry and cherry, it carries a touch of orange Creamsicle into the smooth finish. It's delicious and detailed and belongs at the top of your list of must-have summer roses.
The 2016 A to Z Rose opens with exuberant aromas of rose, strawberry, hibiscus, watermelon, lemon, thyme and orange peel followed by pomegranate, cranberry and wet stone. On the palate, red fruit flavors with refreshing acidity offer freshness while a creamy nature offers volume and length. Bright and rich at the same time, the wine lingers with strawberry, rose, thyme and mineral flavors finally finishing clean and crisp. While easily paired throughout the year with all types of food, the A to Z Rose was absolutely made for late spring and summer enjoyment.
Pair with watermelon, feta & mint, crispy hors d'oeuvres with spicy sauces, grilled shellfish, fish & chips, potato salad with bacon- for that matter, most anything with bacon.
