"Brilliant salmon orange color. Interesting aromas and flavors of sweet pickle relish and spiced berries and plantains with a silky, bright, dry-yetfruity light-to-medium body and a delightful, medium-length finish imparting nuances of watermelon, Bing cherry, and nut brittle with a suggestion of oak flavor. A uniquely flavorful rose with a great savory character."

"A blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Gamay, and 20% Pinot Noir, this rose reveals a light salmon pink color and very faint red cherry skin on the nose with floral notes. It exhibits a hint of sweetness on the attack with red berry fruit on the mid-palate and a nice lingering finish of red berry/cherry notes."

"Light lurid orange. Ripe red berries and tangerine on the nose and in the mouth. In a smooth, warm, open-knit style; a hint of white pepper adds finishing cut and spiciness."

"Spicy, herbal and peppery, with lots of floral and strawberry nuances, the 2015 Le Rose is medium-bodied, supple, and pretty on the palate, with solid acidity and texture. It won't be for everyone given the herbal edge, but there's plenty to like here. - Jeb Dunnuck"
