Straw hue with big aromas away from the glass of ripe rich summer fruit,
Palate--Surprisingly tart first impression with auster fruit.
This is a $7 rosé on sale and because of who made it, I grabbed it. Charles Smith is a noted Washington state winery who makes reliably good wine at numerous price points. At this juncture, this is surprisingly "tight." The bouquet is lively but the palate not so much.
If you pair this with the right food it will be ok for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it as an aperitif.
