2019 Bieler and Smith - Charles & Charles Rose, Columbia Valley, USA (750ml)
The color is pale salmon with flashes of a coppery pink. The aromatics lead with notes of wild raspberry and cherry, giving in to bright citrus, Herbs de Provence and lavender. There’s a strong note of rose petal as well. All this carries through on a broad, almost creamy mid-palate and finally a tangy bright finish.
Syrah (71%) takes the lead on this wine, with the rest Grenache, Mourvèdre and bits of Cabernet Sauvignon and Counoise. Substantially lighter in color than recent vintages, the aromas are reductive out of the gate. They open to reveal pleasing notes of watermelon, strawberry and herb. The palate is light, brisk and focused, with plenty of acidity to keep the interest high. It only gets better with time open. - Wine Enthusiast 89pts
