Love this Walla Walla rose! Aromas of cranberry, rhubarb and perky, tart wild red berries. Mouth-watering and juicy, and exactly what you want (need) on a warm summer day. Pair with planked salmon or grilled chicken.

Summer in a glass!
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Wonderfull strawberry and peach aromas with a touch of citrus on the palate. A great summer wine.
Jane LeFresne rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I often find that Rose wine has a bad reputation. This Charles Smith rose is another winner, one that will be in my summer rotation.

Aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit, and slight peach.

Flavours of strawberry, pink grapefruit. Nice acidity and great for the patio. Try it with some grilled salmon.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I seem to smell a mix of daisies and pink grapefruit. Intriguing. Moderately aromatic on the nose, it is a bit more intense on the palate.Quite pleasant mix of red fruits,citruses and red clay. Makes you want to replay the pottery scene in Ghost. Maybe paired with baked salmon in a dill and capers sauce?
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Fragrant, aromas of tart cherries and strawberry, similar on the palate, medium finish. Refreshing! Great for summer sipping, or could be great paired with salmon or even turkey.
Philippe Perreault - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This rosé is made of 100% Syrah.

Clear salmon color.

Aromas of strawberry, raspberry and rose flower.

The wine is fresh, rich and medium.

Pair it with seafood.

Serve it at 8-10 degrees.

Enjoyabe now.
