4 stars "nothing better than a pilgrim wine for Thanksgiving! The nose was rather subtle but on the palate, it was rich, sweet and fruity. Perfect with the turkey, the cranberry sauce and the yams and marshmallow."

"Named after Gary Franscioni's wife, Rosella's Vineyard is in the cooler north end of the appellation. The wine is primarily made from the 'Pisoni' clone of Pinot Noir, harvested with low yields from select blocks of the vineyard. The wine offers aromas of ripe red fruits, giving way to intense flavors of ripe cherries, wild strawberries with a plush and silky mouth-feel, a lengthy an bright finish echoing in the mouth with fringes of cinnamon, clove and vanillin.
