Honestly, I do not like most dry French rose wines, and this one reminds me exactly of that, but with a wonky aftertaste/finish that makes it not good with anything that I can think of.  Classic color and nose, with a fruit flavor that I cannot discern at all.  Acidity is light.  Just not right [for me].
