Partridge eye pink. Chlorine pool flows to sweet marjoram.  Ginger snap and candied apple floats atop its flashing green soul.  Lacy and long on individuality and intricacy.  Now – 2022+.

Partridge eye pink.  Rounded, intricate nose of fraises-de-bois, sandalwood and fresh sea air.  Flavorsome, compact and streamlined on the palate: red berry, blood orange & citrus zest, apple skin. Superb ripeness and an etched sweetness that segues into a long, resonant finish.  A malic acidity.  A mousse and bead of good character.  This has greatly benefited from  a few years of cellar time, gaining in succulence and dimension.  A fragrant, stylish, serious NV Rose.  Now.
