Still going strong
Pink salmon color. Strawberry and mint nose. Light to medium bodied, crushed raspberries, rhubarb, a touch of bitter almonds, good acid, and a medium length sweet candy finish. A good, food-friendly summer wine.
Cam was on the mark
Cam nailed this in his assessment. That said, this is not my style of Rose. I would prefer more Syrah to enhance the depth of the wine. It was a bit too fruity for me. I like the Rhone style better.
A nice balanced rose wine
I have never tried a Rose wine before now, but I was completely impressed with the 514 though. To describe it, I would say it was kind of like a hybrid wine, a nice balance of the best of both worlds of a red wine and a white wine. It was just a tad dry for my girlfriend, but to me it was only mildly dry. Doesn't have an overly powerful nose, and it has a nice smooth fruity finish. Very easy to drink. Also, the 514 wasn't overly sweet either. This would be a great wine to start drinking if you want to begin developing a palette for red wines.
OK but not worth the price
Not a heck of a lot of flavor, somewhat like flower water, my wife did not mind it, I could not drink it. There are too many other good wines to try to develop a palate for Rose.
Got this as a gift for a freind who likes "pink" wines. She loved it!
This is a really well balanced Rose--subtle flavors along with just a touch of sweetness.
Everyone was happy
Had red and white drinkers together and this pleased everyone.
Summer In A Bottle
Although we are generally red wine fans, this is the rose wine we have been seeking for a long time. Full of flavor to enjoy on Arizona's hot summer evenings ... or any time!
Strawberries (in a very good way)!
More Spanish/California than Provencal. Less mineral, bolder strawberry flavor while still dry, acid, and interesting.
Perfect Summer Sipper
I'm just beginning to appreciate rose. 514 is dry and refreshing, perfect for summer or now.
