Notes of cherry and berry burst from the glass in this off-dry sparkling rosé. It's a bit confected in profile, but hints of violet and bramble lend elegance. Cranberry acidity shocks the midpalate before finishing in a soft, pillowy foam. It's a fun, unique sparkling that's surprisingly well composed.
