Bright mint strawberry water and white watermelon characters are persistent in the whole cluster pressed Grenache. Completely dry, this component of the blend is all about freshness and acidity. The Mourvédre brings more richness and texture to the blend and adds color and spice. The Sonoma Cast Stone concrete egg makes the wine round; the acidity is expressed more as minerality rather than tartness. This provides structured balance through the finish, and leaves the palate energized. Our Rosé is the lightest, freshest wine in our portfolio, to be consumed immediately. Expect tartrates to form on the cork and bottle. Age at cellar temperature to avoid tartrates buildup, and serve chilled at 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
