Dry American Style Rosé

Kendall-Jackson Vintners Reserve Rosé

Staff Wine Review –

We like it. Dry with modest fruit.

This is a widely available American style rosé at usually a reasonable price. A very dry wine and not at all sweet or close to sweet. You won’t find depth or layered flavors here. Hints of plum and berries, yes, if you don’t linger over it too long as they will fade after pouring. Bright, good color, nice aromas decent price and good with food.
