Dry and crisp
Good acidity with dry minerality and some slight strawberry notes. Great for the hot summer
Excellent rose' for summer!
We like this rose. Dry, yet full of flavor and a great wine for summer!
Will try again.
I like the region more than the grape, but this one might grow on me. I just wish "watermelon" were not the predominant note. I shared the bottle with my mom, and she disagreed. She is completely rosé obsessed, and the fruity but dry style of Lot 668 suited her very well. I'll get one more and we'll see if our first impressions were correct.
Nice rose, not too sweet. Very drinkable.
Great to drink now.
This surprising rose, which s almost orange - due to the Sangiovese grape used, was very pleasant and cleansing. Long and grassy finish. Hint of lemon and some clay.

Not my favorite ... I'm still looking for a replacement for last year's Rose from Napa made with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes (Lot 557). :(
Solid if you prefer dry rosé
Aroma is very floral, some light hints of strawberry. Very dry, along the lines of a Provence-style rosé. Some light melon notes, bright acidity. I think this is a fine wine, but it's among my least favorite CH rosés....but simply because I do not prefer the Provence style rosé. If you like a dryer rosé, I think this is a hit.
One of our favorites!
I bought this for a party we were having and had some left over...not because it wasn't good but because I over planned! Fortunately, I was able to serve it with dinner one night and my husband, who normally won't even taste a rose' had it. He is now a convert!
Not my favorite rose'
Just ok. Not much fruitiness, very dry.
Lots of character
An unusually complex Rose--from the Sangiovese ("Blood of Jupiter") grape found mostly in Tuscany or Chianti. But this is from Napa, with a distinctive character--even a bit of earthiness along with some hints of cantaloupe and strawberry. If you think Rose wines are just uninteresting, try this one. It's likely to change your mind.
