This pale pink wine has a nose of strawberries, green parts and all. It is a fresh and lively aroma, one that invites the sip deliciously. The palate shows more strawberries, along with some stone fruit and a hint of salinity. The acidity is refreshing and will make for good food pairings across a wide range of dishes. — 6 days ago
This Rosè needs time to open up otherwise it shows a heavy floral note on the palate.@Randy Fuller you are correct; I am getting spearmint on the nose and palate! Nice nuances of nectarine, strawberries, roses and orange peel. Good acid and fruit balance. — 8 days ago

My first time trying the Cruse Tradition rosé since the dosage trial about a year ago. Really enjoyed it and am now kicking myself I didn’t buy more…maybe I’ll check back with them. At least Ultramarine’s release is around the corner!
As with his normal Tradition, these have such a grower champagne vibe to them with a new world spin. I don’t remember the dosage on this, but it’s low. Big time mousse initially but they don’t stick around long. There’s a vinous quality to this style (kind of like Laherte Freres saignee rosé), where the red fruit is powerful and masks the bubbles to a degree, but it works. Blood orange twang joins in at the finish. I enjoy the freshness on these, and think that’s when they show their best. Delicious. — a day ago
Color of dark purple, look dense. Nose of ripe dark fruits, some milky chocolate, some aldehyde, some spice, some more blackberry and cherry jam, and a bit oaky. Nose is pretty good. Taste follows the nose, with dominant currant and ripe grapes, plus oak, refined tannins, and subtle acidity, a bit peppery spice, lots of flavors and tasty. Aftertaste is also quite long and clean. Just a bit too sweet for me. But a good one. — 12 days ago
The 2021 Rosé Ode to Lulu shows mineral-tinged aromas of red berries, nectarine and citrus zest complemented by herb notes. Silky and energetic on the palate, offering white peach, strawberry and tangerine flavors with delineation and tension. A floral note lingers on the finish. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2022) — a day ago
