Fjord Vineyards 2019 Cabernet Franc Rosé

Extremely fresh, the nose smells of first-of-the-season strawberries, just-ripe peach, pink grapefruit and just enough sweet herb to remind you that this is 100% cabernet franc.

Dry and brisk with great acidity, the palate is a beam of pure strawberry with just a little vanilla-tinged creaminess on the mid-palate and delicate peach and grapefruit notes on a long finish that turns just a little savory at the very end. Juicy and balanced, this is one of the best 2019 rosés I’ve tasted.
