Refreshing summer sipper with sweet strawberry notes, slight dusty herbs and good acidity. This straddles the lighter/sharper roses and the darker more fruit forward ones.

Great napa rose of merlot. Just enough fruit to give it some body, but retains the saignee sensibility.

Jammy and rustic. Unattractive.

Generally onsistent with prior notes. Color is rose pink. Scent is strawberry. Tastes of strawberry and acidity, and very dry. Better than prior three bottles consumed last year.

Q4 2014 Wine Dinner (Everett Home): Consistent with prior experiences, this is becoming my go-to rose. Full bodied and dry, a great wine to enjoy while you are out on the patio or finishing up dinner prep. This is always a hit with guests.

Good colour, not much nose, not much varietal, sweet citrus in the finish.

Pretty nondescript, which is a bit of a letdown given the winemaker. The color is captivating but the nose and palate both fall short and fail to hold much interest. Too bad.

Light floral and berry notes. Distinctive Merlot notes of dusty earth and cherry juice.

Solid wine with a summer salad and grilled chicken.

Full-bodied Rose with nice acidity that carries through to the finish. Strawberry dominates. The 2012 is lighter and crisper than the 2011 that I tasted a few weeks ago, but you still won't mistake it for Southern France. Nice summer quaff.

Day 1 this was rather harsh and overly acidic. Gave me reflux! Good strawberry and apple flavors though. Let it sit a couple nights in the fridge and day 3 tried again. Still a bit on the acidic side, but this one has mellowed out a bit with the additional days being open. Quickly losing fruit however, more strawberry than apple now. Tart finish. 83 on day 1, 86+ on day 3. Averaging out to 85.

Light medium orange pink color; aromatic, tart Rainier cherry, ripe citrus nose; tasty, juicy, ripe citrus, mineral, ripe pear, Rainier cherry palate with good acidity, reminiscent of a good Bordeaux rosé; medium-plus finish (58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc)

Just a tad over my tipping point for sweetness. Seems like a bit too much extraction. Maybe Sagniee (not my preferred rose)? Just too much sweet strawberry and not enough mineral. That said, I really enjoyed sipping this in the sun, despite not being my "ideal" rose. The 2013, which I had at Ma(i)sonry last weekend, was much more my style, and rated a solid 91.

Consistent with the other three bottles I've tasted, this wine was dark pink bordering on copper in color and showed strawberry, pomegranate and spices on the nose. The mouth feel brought firmer than expected acidity, tart currant and hints of minerality. The finish was medium in length with the pomegranate notes lingering.

Purchased for $18US, this very dry rose' is much bigger in style than the southern France ones I often drink and enjoy. Well made, but it's not one that I would reach for when thinking rose'. I like them lighter.

Morale Rehabilitation Dinner (Everett home): Consistent with prior notes. This was a hit with the guests at our party, who really enjoyed a dry, full-flavored rose with our appetizers while chatting outdoors. I think that is the perfect use for this bottle, so if you are entertaining this spring/summer, give this a shot.

I didn't take notes on my first bottle, but I remembered liking it more than I did this time. Nice enough, but heavier and sweeter than I expected. Not what I was looking for sitting on the beach under the hot sun.
