This brilliant Rose offers everything I love in a glass of pink wine. Colored a pretty cranberry-hue it offers aromas and flavors of ripe black cherries, strawberries and spice notes with the zippy tang of fresh raspberries, it’s like a taste of summer. Named for the Thompson’s daughter Elizabeth, the artist featured on the label with a piece she created when she was 11 in 1997. This Rose is wonderful alone as an aperitif and it’s perfect for summertime picnics at your nearby lake. Try it with shellfish, cold fried chicken or pasta salads. A good deal at $16 retail, but it’s only available at the SLO tasting room on Hwy. 227 (Broad St.) in Edna Valley.
