Dry Rosé
Dry Rosé, 2013

$ 22.00

During the busy harvest season, we often think about how nice it is to relax and enjoy a bottle of dry Rosé. This one was made by directly pressing red grapes harvested at appropriate maturity for the product. We like to think of it as the blood of our grapes, the sweat of our brow, and tears of joy.

Winemaker's Notes

During a decade and a half of making dry rosé I have really gotten obsessed with bringing this to another level. The marriage of Grenache with Syrah is a traditional thing in southern France and I’m finding that it also translates very well to this part of the ‘new world.’ The 2013 found its perfect combination of 30% Grenache and 70% Syrah, practically identical to the 2011 vintage’s sweet spot.

Bone–dry and structured in a way to allow it to float effortlessly over bitter, salty, fatty foods with equal facility, this is my desert-island wine. It has some gentle, floral aromas, maraschino cherry, a hint of boxwood/passionfruit on the nose. It enters the mouth with a slight firmness from its refreshing acidity that wakes up the palate. Those of you who have experienced this know. Those who have not, should try just one bottle. In 2013, I was able to make more of this exactly the way I want so it is OK to treat yourself without feeling like you robbed someone else.

    Light salmon color; initially muted, strawberry and stone fruit aroma with floral notes that developed with airing; medium body; crisp, cranberry, strawberry, melon, and white peach flavors with bright acidity; lingering aftertaste. Highly recommended. My score 89. Nick Ponomareff

    Light, bright pink. Vibrant, precise aromas of strawberry, orange zest and white pepper. Taut and linear on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering an array of red fruit flavors and a hint of honeysuckle. Finishes on a juicy tangerine note, with excellent clarity and spicy persistence. 89 points. Josh Raynolds
