ws 95 points - The NV Rose R has a pale cherry-pink color and aromas of red berries, citrus peel and dried flowers. The palate is berry-laced and refreshing with anchoring texture that will allow it to pair well with food.
This rose is multivintage and multivarietal, differentiated by the lot number (this current release is IX), which is indicated on the cork just below the capsule. The IX is principally 2016 Pinot Noir, blended with some 2015 Chardonnay. It shows impressive density, with rhubarb, strawberry and maraschino cherry flavors, along with excellent texture, depth and length.
