Natalie's Score: 88/100
A lovely Niagara rose made from the Cabernet grape. Notes of field strawberries and cherry. Racy acidity that makes this off-dry rose both refreshing and delicious. Pair with seafood.
Cabernet Rosé food pairings: barbecued chicken, grilled pork, grilled bell pepper sandwiches.

Wow! What an interesting rosé! Lots going on here. Aromas of almond, cranberry and orange. Lots of acidity in this off-dry rosé with flavours of strawberry and cranberry.
Sip this one on a back porch on a hot summer day or pair with BBQed chicken.

|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Very fruit forward on the nose with ripe strawberries and canteloupe aromas. The flavours follow through on the palate as well as citrus notes and a marzipan finish. It is light to medium bodied, there's a touch of residual sugar but it is more on the dry side, and it has a long finish.
Drink this one on its own or pair with a fresh summer salad.

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A burst of summer fresh perfume! Airy and aromatic. Pink flowers, roses, peonies, apricots, fabric softener and coconut dusted sultana raisins. Flavours of toffee, and mandarin touches. Flavours show maraschino cherries and lemon cake. Acidity is balanced. Pair with smoked salmon canapes and Hawaiian pizza. 88 points - tasted July 2018
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of orange peel, strawberry, and cherry on the nose. Light and bright, slightly off-dry, with a bit of candied strawberry on the palate. Enjoy with a cheese plate or seafood salad.
|Luc Delorme rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
The nose is quite open for a rosé, with strawberries and cut grass aromas at the forefront. The herbaciousness goes away on the palate, with the flavours shifting dramatically to sweet, artificial, almost medicinal strawberries.
Almost too bold to sip on its own, this wine would do well paired with pork on the barbecue.
