The show has begun, once the lights rise and illuminate Rose’s rose gold shine. The stage is set by magical color and an elegant entrance of bright cherry, rose petal and wafting watermelon and strawberry. Rose’s practiced balancing act of minerality and fresh acidity lifts a gorgeous ensemble of lemon zest and peaches on the palate. This seamless performance always receives a standing ovation, making one yearn for an encore; but it’s vanishing act has truly become most impressive!
