I've enjoyed this wine across multiple vintages, and I'm officially declaring it my favorite rosé. It has that signature light and refreshing feel and taste you expect in a rosé, but it's relatively fruit forward with notes of strawberries and cherry. It has a nice balance of acidity, which for me, tends to be too much on many other rosés, and is just perfect in the Arriviste.
