Marisco 2016 Pinot Noir Rosé, The King's Desire

Absolutely one of the best rosés I've tasted so far in 2017 it shows it has both layers of sweet (nose) versus layers of dry (palate): aromas of watermelon Jolly Rancher candy, Fruit Roll-ups, Big League Chew and other fruit-driven candy that leads the mind in only one direction (SWEET) ... but hold the phone, the mid-to-finish is a DRY experience where the Jolly Rancher suddenly, and unexpectedly, loses the sweet and develops lime, red berries and acidity that balances everything, and I do mean everything - this is the rosé you need to get to have on hand this summer. And here's another scoop, it's only available in Ontario.  Price: $19.95 - Rating: ****
