Stunning aromas of violet, earth and spice with finely woven layers of succulent, pure fruit, this wine is both delicate and complex on the palate. Delicious with smoked salmon or beef carpaccio. Rosella's, and the neighboring Garys' Vineyard, both lie inland from Monterey Bay and greatly benefit from coastal weather conditions including foggy mornings and long, cool yet sunny days.
"This is a terrific vineyard. Miner's '05 Rosella's is a deliciously compelling wine, dry and complex. With its gently polished tannins and adequate acidity, the blackberry, cherry, cola and cinnamon spice flavors are wrapped into a beautiful texture."
"Floral strawberry scents meld with musky complexity in this wine. The tannins have an unusually saline character, a brininess that would match seared duck breast served with duck leg confit."
