Taste/Description: @smokingloonwine is the recipient of 29 Wine Enthusiast Best Buy Awards and 15 Wine Spectator Best Value Awards. Their motto is good wine doesn’t need to take itself so seriously.
This rose is made from 60% Barbera, 27% Syrah and 13& Grenache grapes. On the nose you get strawberry, plum, cantaloupe and plum fruit notes along with floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle. On the palate you get apricot, strawberry with crisp but smooth finish. A great price tag for a very nice wine
