The 2011 vintage was #42 on Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
The aromas of watermelon, grass, wet stones and citrus still dominate and they carry through the palate, but in a more dynamic way finishing with bright acidity. The level of C02 is reduced this vintage, so while previously there was a touch of effervescence it's more integrated this year. The winery's goal is to achieve the perfect balance of fruit, acid and savory.
The 2011 is better than the 2012 ('11 vintage is 100% Syrah) but this is still a tremendous Rose for the price. Highly recommend.
