i'm not a big fan of rosé, and i get the chance to try them at least once a month at our local wine tasting, and until this one came along, i've never really wanted to buy one. we enjoyed this pool side with some friends and some pizza. meeker had a little earthy quality that i had not picked up in any other rosé. on the nose, floral notes along with red fruit, especially strawberry. on the palate, crisp with soft tannins, more strawberry, a little pepper, and the mineral/earth medium finish. and for the price of $12, a worthy buy for a summer quencher.
