Kelley & Young Rose 2016

Alexander Valley Rose

"This rose from Kelley & Young has a creamy red berry cinnamon quality, watermelon and very even distribution of subtle mineral throughout the palate and a low alcohol of 13.2%. This is really more than just the perfect summer-time sipping wine, it is the finest Bordeaux blend rose I have ever tasted, hands down – and with production of only 280 cases, wine club members and restauranteurs are going to have the exclusive opportunity to enjoy one of the finest roses I have tasted. Pair with barbequed chicken, seafood,  salmon, scallops – it really bridges all the gaps; salads – use your imagination. The tart cherry, which I didn’t mention aforehand is another element of the wine that makes it perfect with food – it’s lovely to have an opportunity to taste a wine so fine. Enjoy now through 2019 -- cheers." - John Haggard, Sophie's Cellars
