Maternal and protective, Carol may come off as soft, almost delicate, at first, but like this Monterey County rosé, she turns out to be anything but once unleashed. The bright strawberry and watermelon flavors of this intriguing wine surge forth on the palate, along with a complexity and quiet inner strength that few rosés possess. When it comes to quenching your thirst and sense of adventure, this is a wine that gets the job done — but on its own terms.
