Hmmm....I'm not a rose expert, but this reminded me of drinking water with a very lightly infused and thin flavor. I kept swirling and not much of anything on the nose. Taste after taste left me wondering where the wine personality was. Maybe my expectation was set too high as this was my 1st ER from Cayuse given my years of experience drinking every other Cayuse wine made. Very light pink color which I liked. Hope my other 2 bottles are better.
Took to a B-day dinner for a friend. No formal notes. Nose of funky minerality, rose water. Palate felt round with tart strawberry, melon, and some funky minerals. Felt like this was a little too round for my liking, but could of been the spicing pairing and all the rieslings.
