airfield-estates-rosé-2014-bottleBest Buy! Marcus Miller offers this with a new label, but he continues to lean on Airfield Estates’ fans to foot-press the grapes he uses for his rosé program. He also furthers his commitment to using estate Sangiovese, which allows him to present this pink with the subtle salmon color in the style of a rosé from Provence. Fanciful aromas of strawberry, white peach, pineapple, tutti frutti and purple lavender lead to a drink that offers some elegance. Flavors of dried strawberry and peach combine for a bright midpalate and a finish of dried sweet cherries. It’s perfect for grilled salmon, and one could drink this all day long.
