Aaron: This has a rich flavor for a rose sparkling.  The nose is tingly and floral while the palate experiences red berries and tomatoes.  This is sweet but almost bitter at mid swallow and followed by some vegetable tastes.  This was as strange as it sounds, but it was actually pretty good.  90 points

Teri: Want to try something different? Go for a sparkling rose. Slightly fuller than a sparkling white, but unique flavors from the red vs. white grape. This bottle smelled of baked apples and flavors of crisp mulberry with red apple and dried strawberry. It also had a longer finish than most sparkling wines but still felt crisp and clean. There was also a unique veggie flavor component (perhaps tomato) to the wine adding to it’s unique flavors. 89 points
