Early Mountain Vineyards 2017 Rose
One of the best 2017 roses I've tasted shows beautiful aromas of wild strawberries, honeydew melon and peaches -- all sprinkled with dried herbs and a grind of white pepper.
Crisp and distinctly minerally on a focused, medium-bodied palate, this rose offers fruity notes of red cherry and strawberry made a bit savory by saline minerality and more herbs. Great acidity is joined by notes of lime and red grapefruit juice at the end of a long, dry finish.
