Candied berry and lemon meringue aromas and flavors highlight this lively rosé. Shows good intensity and harmony, while the berry notes linger on the finish. A delicate style, with a spicy aftertaste. Drink now through 2015. Score: 90. —Bruce Sanderson, June 15, 2007.

Good Champagne, but not for everyone. Mature, earthy and slightly astringent. Some cherry and apple cider flavors.

A pale copper color and modest bread-dough aromas and flavors characterize this crisp, modestly intense bubbly. A lively wine that has some grace and elegance. Finishes with a touch of cherry.
A complete, well-balanced, flavorful rosé that has fresh fruit flavors accented by spice. It's mouth-filling, vibrant and harmonious overall.
An elegant marriage of fruit and toast gives this vibrancy and depth. The flavors range from cherry and raspberry to smoke and toast, with a long, crisp finish. Delicious now, but should improve in the bottle.
Great combination of abundant fruit flavors and elegant texture in a memorable rosé. Has an authentic copper color, bright cherry-berry aromas shaded by spices and toast, and a lingering finish. Drink now through 2005.
Straightforward, offering cherry, spice and a flint, turning lean from the middle palate through the finish. Drink now through 2002. –BS
A cornucopia of cherry, grain, mineral and smoke aromas and flavors matched to a medium-bodied, tightly woven structure. I like the balance and harmony here. Drink now through 2005. –BS
A full-bodied rosé, bracing and muscular, with its berry, spice and whole-grain notes allied to a dry, chalky profile. Seems locked up tight now, yet the wheat and coffee aftertaste reveals its promise. Best from 2006 through 2015. 522 cases made. –BS
A sleek, vibrant Champagne, sporting cherry and citrus flavors backed by a bracing structure. It's a little crisp and unyielding on the finish, so give this some time to integrate. Best from 2006 through 2009. 1,500 cases imported. –BS
