2016 Rosé

The rich aromatic profile belies a crisp taste and bone-dry finish. It’s a casual wine with a surprising amount of character. The lower alcohol adds to its sweet plushness, and brings out notes of nectarine and white peach that are perfectly balanced with the green herbaceousness and subtle minerality that is characteristic of Cabernet Franc. There is a lightness, both in color and taste, but this rose has layers... be ready.

Tasting Notes

Pale, with an extremely fresh nose of lime zest, pink grapefruit, cantaloupe and wet stone. After a few minutes it shows aromas of light strawberry syrup, lavender flower and white pear. The palate is as fresh as the nose with a light body and lean texture, vibrant minerality and a long finish.
