Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and spicy, with a clove note weaving through the beguiling raspberry and pear flavors, finishing dry. Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Grenache."

The 2011 is better than the 2012 ('11 vintage is 100% Syrah) but this is still a tremendous Rose for the price. Highly recommend.
