This excellent producer makes a lovely, copper-colored rosé, which sends up fresh and inviting aromas that suggest fresh-baked apple pastries. Baking spices, cinnamon in particular, liven up the scents and flavors, and the wine seems crisp, balanced and full in the mouth. It's a complete, nicely evolved wine, which seems to be at the peak of flavor.
