2012 Sonoma Coast Rosé

2012 Sonoma Coast

Rosé

SONOMA COUNTY


—  SOLD OUT —

TASTING NOTES

Our 2011 rosé was such a big hit, we rented twice the tank space to make more in 2012. And boy are we delighted with the results! Once again our blend leads with Pinot Noir and is enhanced by Syrah and Grenache for a wonderfully layered and complete wine.

A beautiful light reddish-orange color, with a nose of strawberries, ruby red grapefruit, watermelon, rose petals and wet slate. The palate delivers lively flavors of cranberry, more fresh strawberry, rhubarb, hints of ripe apple peel similar to our 2011, and a long finish that lingers on the mineral notes.

Not a simple “pink” drink!
Refreshing and crisp, with nuance and complexity you’d expect from a much more costly bottle. And a great complement for spicy dishes often difficult to pair – Indian food, Mexican, Thai and more. Of course it’s perfect with pizza, burgers and barbecue too. It’s all good!

Rosé is always nice chilled, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find this drinks quite well as it warms a bit in your glass. Start on the cooler side and then savor it for a while. We think you'll enjoy it from start to finish.
