Rose wines are usually considered dry (sweeter-style pink wines are often referred to as blush or white zinfandel) but they may range from bone dry to quite fruity. The color comes from skin contact, as do many of the wine's flavors. The darker the color, the stronger the flavors will be since the wine spent more time mixing with the skins. These darker, fuller-flavored examples are really more like a light red wine while still offering bright acidity and the refreshment that comes from drinking them chilled. Lighter, more delicate styles tend to offer pretty floral aromatics with mild flavors of strawberry and raspberry.
