Tannat Rose

A light rose petal color leads to a nose reminiscent of fresh red berries, currants and raspberry notes. The palate showcases beautiful fruit definition and intensity, with the requisite acidity at its spine, giving a crisp and clean edge to the delicious red currant flavors. This wine possesses engaging fruit with noted depth leading to a lovely lingering, dry finish.
