Calliope Wines 2012 Blend

A beautiful pinkish-orange colour, like a fresh fillet of BC Sockeye salmon. The nose shows vibrant aromas with cranberry, raspberry, and strawberry along with some peach, orange zest, and hints of violets. The palate is just off-dry, balanced nicely with fresh mineral laden acidity, with sun-warmed berry fruit, grapefruit zest, cherry, dried rosemary and rose petals that linger on the finish. Try this with quail or salmon grilled on the BBQ on a bed of arugula.
