    August 17, 2014 - Light copper orange in color, this has a peach/ orange /strawberry nose. Bright acidity and a little effervescent, Orange and lemon flavors with a tinge of strawberry.

    August 3, 2014 - This is getting better with a bit of age. The color is striking. Nice acidity.

    June 6, 2014 - Dinner in the Provinces - Act 2 (Chez Walker - Princeton, NJ): First two wines served as an aperitif for my gourmand guests. Drank this next to a Chateau Margui, very different styles of Rose and divided the group on preference. The AR was the more fruit forward of the two

    Consistent with prior notes, crisp acidity, dry, strawberry/bright red fruits and citrus on the mid palate. Noticed some must on the finish. The wine finishes medium to short

    May 9, 2014 - Valerie and her girlfriends - great dinner and tasting in our cellar! (Cellars at Chez Walker): Had chilled 2 - first bottle was corked. Drank with about half the crowd as an aperitif, great way to start easing into Summer.

    Consistent with prior notes. Crisp acidity, dry, strawberry/bright red fruits and citrus on the mid palate. Good right from the bottle but does open more after about 20 minutes medium and creamy finish.
