WineDiva's Review

Founded in 2001 by winemaker Ted Kane, River Stone is a small estate winery located in Oliver BC. It's comprised of two estate vineyards focusing primarily on Bordeaux-varieties and aromatic whites; the tasting room was opened in 2010.
It's been a decade since I last tasted the River Stone and I believe the rose was made from Malbec at that time.
Now made from Cabernet Franc grapes, which were cold soaked for between 24-48 hours to achieve this vibrant hue.
A salmony-ruby hue this off-dry rose suggests strawberries and honey, rhubarb and peach, red currents, faint spice and some herbal undertones. The palate echoes the nose; it is fruity and slick with nice levity. It has some structure from the tannins to make it a good food wine, and a zesty finish.
