Rating: 3.3 out of 5
Look: Upon inspection, the wine was light salmon color, very translucent hue. The wine has more peach/pink tones on the edges, and shifted into a a light golden color, similar to what you'd see in a classic white wine in the middle. Ultra low viscosity.
Smell: Heavy scents of peach and apricot on the nose. Cherry scents on the back end after the bottle had been opened for 30+ minutes.
Taste: All in all, not a bad little budget rosé. Packs a decent punch for the price point. I'd be probably only roll the dice on this low of a priced Rosé from the Languedoc-Roussillon or Provence regions of France. Super fruity, dry, and acidic. Not many layers. Had a decent grip on the palette after the second glass, mediums tannins on tongue. First prominent taste was blackberry, subtle strawberry and grapefruit, followed later in the tasting by light cherry flavor.
Occasion: Drank on a perfect summer night in June while having drinks outside on a Friday night with my fiancée, after receiving a small raise at my job.
