Heather Wall rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pretty pale salmon colour. Medium +aromas and flavours of strawberry, peach, vanilla, floral, brown sugar. Light bodied and dry with medium acidity that refreshes. Easy drinking and good value summertime sipper.
Serve well chilled. Great with wood oven pizza, grilled salmon, bagel with cream cheese and lox.

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Strawberry candy, raspberry, floral. Beautiful summer sipper. Would go well with grilled trout.
Chris Coughlin rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

With strawberry and rhubarb aromas, and raspberry jam finish on the palate with a bit of 'heat', I could see sipping this on warm evenings on the back porch, enjoy.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Beautiful light pink rose with a sour cherry nose. Also some slightly floral notes on the nose. Dry, with the same tart cherry notes on the palate.

Natalie's Review

Reif Estate Winery Fortune Cabernet Rosé 2013, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: Fresh field strawberries on the nose open up to juicy, fleshy strawberry flavours on the palate. Beautifully balanced with acidity that makes this off-dry rose both refreshing and delicious. Finishes with maraschino cherry and nectarine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
