Martin Ray Russian River 2015 Rosé Of Pinot Noir, $12.74-$14.99, 89 points, poured a beautiful watermelon-red color.
If you buy wines based upon aroma, this Rosé is not for you, even though the aromas were not unpleasant, only nondescript, and shy to the point of imagination.
Light-bodied, but substantial for a Rosé; acidity seemed to me to be more at fair-plus than typically good, quite dry, and flavors of watermelon and flowers with white pepper were excellent and carried deep into the long finish; a well-balanced 13.8% alcohol capped-off an excellent domestic Rosé.
Paired well with my spicy chili.
