Dry Rosé
Vin Gris of Cabernet, 2004

$ 14.00

During the busy harvest season, we often think about how nice it is to relax and enjoy a bottle of Vin Gris. It was made by ‘bleeding off’ a small amount of juice from our red grapes before fermentation. We like to think of it as the blood of our grapes, the sweat of our brow, and tears of joy.

Winemaker's Notes

In 2003, I experimented with making pink wine from this variety. The results were encouraging enough to repeat it in 2004. Compared to the typical Vin Gris of Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, this wine is very dark for a pink wine. Almost as deep a color as some Beaujolais Nouveaux. More generous and lower in acidity than the 2003 Vin Gris of Cabernet Sauvignon, it sings best with salty foccacia and olives (duh, Fred). This is a truly unique wine style that is like nothing else I have seen.
