Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
This enjoyable Hawke's Bay wine is designed 'more in the style of a Mediterranean light red wine than a typical rose'. Blended from Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2006 vintage has light red colour and fresh, berryish, spicy aromas. Vibrantly fruity and smooth, with gentle tannins on the finish, it's a flavoursome, finely balanced wine, enjoyable now.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
This distinguished Hawke's Bay wine is designed "more in the style of a Mediterranean light ted wine than a typical rose', A serious style of rose, it is barrel-fermented, dry and mouthfilling, with a strong surge of berry-fruit flavours, crisp and lively, and oak adding complexity and nuttiness. The 2003, light red in colour, offers strong berry and plum characters, subtle oak and balanced acidity. It has a lot more flavour interest than most roses, with a fully dry finish.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
This distinguished Hawke's Bay wine is designed 'more in the style of a Mediterranean light red wine than a typical rose'. It's a serious style of rose, barrel-fermented, dry and mouthfilling, with a strong surge of berry fruit flavours, crisp and lively, and oak adding complexity and nuttiness. The 2002 is bright pink/red, smooth and weighty, with berry fruit flavours, a hint of oak, and enough acidity to keep things lively. It's the sort of rose that can keep you interested beyond the first glass.

This distinguished Hawke's Bay wine is designed 'more in the style of a Mediterranean light red wine than a typical rose'. The 1999 is a serious yet delicious style of rose, mouthfilling, with a powerful surge of berry fruit flavours and oak adding complexity and nuttiness. The dry, barrel-fermented 2000 vintage is bright pink/red, fresh and substantial, with sweet fruit characters, rich, raspberryish, slightly nutty flavours, crisp and lively, and a long finish.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
This distinguished Hawke's Bay wine is designed "more in the style of a Mediterranean light red wine than a typical rose". The 1998 vintage is notably rich and yummy, weighty and soft, with sweet-fruit delights and masses of raspberry/plum flavour, dry and long. The barrel-fermented 1999 is equally striking. A serious yet delicious style of rose, it is mouthfilling, with a powerful surge of berry fruit flavours and oak adding complexity and nuttiness. Fresh and crisp, with real depth, it's an unusually satisfying rose.

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
The debut 1997 vintage is a barrel-fermented Hawke's Bay blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, designed "more in the style of a Mediterranean light red wine than a typical rose". Bright, raspberry/pink in hue, with deliciously fresh, floral, berryish scents, it's a vibrantly fruity, full-bodied, soft wine, very forward in its appeal, with a sustained, dry finish. Drink this summer.
