    In the inimitable words of Julia Child, "Roses can be served with anything". What she said.

    Food & Wine:  Designated #1 Rose to drink this summer. "You'll be hard-pressed to find a blend of Grenache, Grenache Gris, Barbera, Syrah, and Pinot Noir in a rosé format anywhere in the world. Bright and aromatic thanks to 100 percent whole-cluster pressing, with very limited skin-contact, each variety is tank-fermented separately under cool conditions to retain its steely freshness. A mélange of stone fruit and white floral notes mesh well with the tension and salinity found on the back end of the palate." May 2018

    Winery:  "White peach, citrus, and apricot blossom aromas unfold onto the palate with blood orange, rhubarb and pomegranate flavors. Lively acidity with great tension and verve with a chalky, saline quality.

    Grenache, including some ancient Grenache Gris, dominates the blend providing complex, red fruit flavors and juicy body. This is reined in by Barbera’s tension with a spine of acidity while Syrah contributes a sense of ballast. The Pinot Noir (from a biodynamic vineyard) lends bright red berries and floral aromatics."
