Simi Roseto - Rose from Sonoma County, California

Simi Roseto - Rose from Sonoma County, California

This is the first rose that I've tried and actually liked.  It is fruity (think peachy, cherry) - without being sweet - and has a nice floral hint rose...followed by an undertone of white pepper.

My own interpretation would be: 
A nice Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of Pinot Noir and a hint of muskiness. - Although it is actually none of these varietals - it's flavor profile, I think, is best described as above.

It is about $15 a bottle.  Best served slightly chilled.
