Josh Jensen enters his fourth decade of pink wine with this bottling, which shows ripe strawberry, red apple, white peach, plum and red cherry on the fleshy and full now. It tightens up on the palate, showing tart berries, orange peels and pencil lead minerality, finishing with a long stroke of cherry-watermelon. Lots of depth for a rosé.
