"This pink blend of 66% Merlot and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon simply stood heads above other roses in its flight. Light plum and strawberry juice aromas meet with yeastyness on the nose, while the palate combines a prominent acidity with an extremely chalky mouthfeel. Light raspberry, bubblegum and squeezed mandarin flavors complete the experience." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Beautifully melding elegance and grace with style, our 2016 Rosé is a mouthwatering blend of 66% Merlot and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon. The gorgeous salmon hue hints as the remarkably refreshing and blanced wine that pairs with a vareity of foods.

Winemaking:
Each lot was hand harvested into small bins at the perfect balance of ripeness, fruit flavor, and acidity, then fermented in 100% stainless steel to preserve the signature zip of this luscious rosé. The grapes for this wine were intentionally picked for rosé to capture their natural acidity.
