"Dark ruby red in color, this is rich combination of 87% Pinot Noir with 8% Syrah and 5% Grenache. Bright, well-composed flavors of grapefruit, orange and meaty dried herb make for a medium-bodied experience of exuberance and power."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: We take our Rosé as seriously as any of our other more… well … more “serious” wines. Rarely will you find one as sumptuous, juicy and complex, and both a joyful aperitif as well as worthy contender at the table. Sure, it’s easy to knock this one back on a warm day, but pair it with food and much more awaits than with a simple casual pink. Inspired this year by the outstanding quality of our Sonoma Coast vineyard sources, we upped the Pinot Noir component to a whopping 87% while rounding out the blend with 8% Syrah and 5% Grenache. In pursuit of extra complexity, we fermented everything in barrel this vintage, which made for a crazy amount of work, but the proof is in the glass. The deep electric-cherry color is an immediate clue that you’re in for an atypical Rosé experience, and what follows on the nose and palate deliver on every level: A totally satisfying dose of lively red berry, watermelon, delicate spice, beautiful texture, all with a long, dry and wonderfully complete finish. An absolute knockout! There is less to go around this year than last vintage, so we advise you to stock up early. This will drink like a champ right out of the gate and age beautifully for another 3-4 years.
