Smells fruity in a black cherry way, with some charcoal and earth nuances and a top note of mint. A little sweet on entry but also very high in acidity, so the suggestion of sweetness adds nice balance. This is a large scaled rosé, deep with rich black cherry and blackberry fruit that really penetrate the palate. The finish is nicely bright with a sour cherry refrain and a little spice on the finale, almost a touch peppery. Big but very well done. Not what I expect from a rosé, but there’s no arguing the appeal. 91pts
