Excellent US rose. Salmon-colored with copper glints. Not much aromas, but palate of strawberry tending towards strawberry-rhubarb, slight hints of Jolly Rancher watermelon, and a flinty edge. Bright acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Another clunker. Funky, cheesy aromas are difficult to get past. Palate is reasonably ok, dry and crisp raspberry with some flowery notes. Wouldn't seek it out or purchase.

Solid, thirst-quenching if not sexy American Rosé - a solid choice for summer sipping on the porch.

Winemaker's Notes:

We continue our efforts to perfect this gris du coeur by insinuating a not insignificant dollop of white wine – principally grenache blanc – into our typical blend of southern Rhône red varieties, a protocol initiated with the 2003 vintage. Though not a technique practiced widely in Vin Gris’ spiritual homeland of Provence, we find the addition of rich white wine adds some incremental gravity and seriousness without jeopardizing the final blend’s vivacious deliciousness – a quality critical in the perfect apéritif, or if one wishes to wash down a Casa Moreno carnitas taco under the hot sun of Santa Cruz. 2007 was harmonious overall and as a result we find deliciously bright, filigreed fruit here – pale cherry, strawberry and a hint of sassafras. The botanical, hillside herb notes are in evidence adding a savory note reminiscent of wild Provencal plantings: lavender, rosemary and young fennel. Alcohol by volume 13.5%
