    July 10, 2011 - Same notes as before. Let it open for a few minutes before enjoying.

    February 9, 2011 - Color: Dark for a rose, but still obviously a rose. Pink. Nose: faint wild strawberries. Taste: This is an excellent rose to my taste. Delicious strawberry juice with enough tart rhubarb and acidity to balance very well. A nice bit of viscosity on the mouth, and a good finish.

    January 23, 2011 - shy floral nose, strong mineral and strawberries on the palate, shows off red fruit, solid acid, refreshing, surprisingly good match with tacos

    January 22, 2011 - Rose, strawberry and cherry. I like this wine better after it's been open for 15-20 minutes.

    November 21, 2010 - A little muted, both in aroma and flavor. Got better as bottle was consumed over 2.5 hours. A little too silky/full mouthfeel for my taste in rosés. A light/medium bodied red disguising as a rose. Good with food.
