Official Rosangel Tasting Notes

“Rosangel yields a complex, perfumed nose with ripe fruit and floral notes, plus hints of vanilla.  The palate holds flavors of dried fruits, which leads to a smooth and gentle finish.  The sophisticated sunset pink color visually stimulates the senses and encourages cocktail experimentation.” – Rosangel website
