Merriam Vineyards Russian River Valley 2015 Pinot Noir Rosé, $16.99-$19.99, 91 points, poured a pale maroon color.
Aromatic dusty loam smell accented strawberry, kiwi, and floral aromas.
Light, crisp, appropriately acidic with excellent flavors reflective of the aromas coalesced beautifully.
Finished well on the trailing palate, a sneaky 13.9% alcohol, and warm almost biting white pepper spice notes.
Paired perfectly with my summer-time BLT sandwich.
A real competitor for Provence.
