"Initially restrained and mineral, this pale-ruby rosé seems to intensify in fruit concentration, shifting from shades of crisp raspberry to plush, juicy red cherry and plum. Dry and full bodied in style, it's a penetrating wine structured by fine, integrated tannins and brisk acidity. Enjoy now–2022." Best Buy
