"Lurid pink. Displays expansive red berry, floral and spice scents that pick up a hint of licorice with aeration. In a weighty style for a pink wine, offering gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a strong suggestion of candied flowers. Finishes smooth and broad, with repeating red fruit character and a hint of spicy white pepper. - Josh Raynolds"

"Lurid pink. Pungent aromas of dried cherry, red currant and candied flowers; a hint of orange zest adds lift. Sappy and broad in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and succulent herb flavors that tighten up quickly on the back half. Finishes with firm grip, a hint of warmth and repeating floral character."

"Light red. This all Grenache rosado from Rioja offers a depth of fresh red fruit seldom found in the pale-colored rosés that dominate the market today. It has the stuffing to accompany spicy food from the grill. Traditional in style, delicious, and incredible value!"

"Light, lurid red. Deeply pitched raspberry and cherry aromas show good power, with a hint of white pepper providing lift. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering juicy red fruit flavors and a touch of blood orange. Finishes on a sappy note, with solid, spicy punch and cling. This wine's heft will allow it to work with richer foods while its spiciness and tangy cut will serve it well alongside lighter fare, but it's definitely a rosé for food. - JR"
