Pale salmon pink in color, aromatics of rose petals, ripe strawberries and blood orange introduce a lively and juicy entry with bright acidity enhancing flavors of nectarine, rainier cherry, and persimmon. The finish is long and balanced, with rich undertones of spiced stand-along beverage on a sunny day.

Lab rat here! Sorry for the delay; I was finally chosen to be a lab rat while on the opposite coast at a conference, so I had to have the package held until I could pick it up today. I also have a case of conference flu and I’m not sure my taste buds or sense of smell can be fully trusted, but I’ve got my husband here tasting too.
We got to try the Waterbrook. Very fruity, semi-dry, decent complexity of flavor. Both of us taste a lot of cherry. My husband describes it as “dangerous” because it’s one of those wines that is so easily drinkable that you could easily find the glass gone. I don’t have the opportunity to drink rosés frequently but I’m really enjoying this one. I probably would have passed on this offer but now I’m seriously considering.
