A To Z Winery Rose ofSangiovese

The A to Z Rose has bright and vibrant aromas of wild strawberries, red currants, peach, watermelon, cherries, raspberries and hibiscus with hints of rosemary and thyme. In the mouth, the juicy attack is a riot of red fruit and melon flavors that move into a mid-palate that is bright and rich all at once. The wine ultimately finishes crisp and clean with lingering flavors of strawberries and lavender. Pure enjoyment! A to Z Rose is made with intention from grape to glass. -The Winery

    Jneises, I agree with you on the value of being able to print the list. I did some poking around and found that it can be printed. See the "Save List" link above. Click on that, and the list will be added to your profile. A box will also appear that says "List Saved" and will give you some options. Click on "Manage Lists." This will take you to the "My Lists" portion of your Snooth profile. You should see the "2013 PVA Top Value WInners" list there. However, not all the list will be displayed. Click on the link that says "See Full List." Not surprisingly, the complete list is displayed. Now, look above the list on the right hand side, and you will see a link that says "Print" with a printer icon. That should do it for you.
