2016 Figuière Rosé Signature Magali ($18.00) 90

2016 Figuière Rosé Signature Magali, 90 points

A vibrant, sharply focused Figuière Rosé Signature Magali displays mineral-accented strawberry and orange zest qualities with excellent clarity and tension. Its flavor intensity and finesse allow it pull double duty as a highly flexible companion to a range of foods or as an aperitif. (JR)
