NOTES: The Wine Merchants “BEST SELLING ROSE” is back!!!!!  Deep ruby color with aromas of cassis and red currant, good length in the mouth with notes of plum. Excellent persistence and an overall pleaser. This is the ideal wine for spring and summer. Get it while it lasts. Those of you who missed out last year know what I’m talking about……


COMMENTS: Not Recommended.  This is the type of wine that gives roses a bad name. Lackluster and lacking in identity.
