2018 Rosé

Overall, a beautiful pearlescent color and brilliant hue hint at the delicate and focused nature of this rosé.  Both powerful and subtle, this wine develops over time and delivers a mouthwatering freshness.

On the nose, this wine is both bright and subtle with floral notes of orange blossom and rose petal.  Hints of citrus enhance the aromas with grapefruit, kumquat, and Meyer lemon zest.  A earthy spice shows itself with white pepper and melon rind, while fresh fruits of Bing cherry and raspberry bring depth and character to the rosé. 

On the palate the wine is bright and refreshing with a zingy mineral core.  The body is silky in texture mixing perfectly with the tropical fruit flavors.  Guava and lychee work together with quince and underripe strawberry to build intensity and focus while retaining a leanness in the finish.
