Dashe Cellars Rosé Blend Dry Creek Valley Vin Gris 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

To our knowledge, Michael Dashe is the only California vigneron to ferment his wines using entirely indigenous yeasts. He's a maverick, a special guy, and a great winemaker. This Vin Gris is made from Grenache, Petite Sirah, and Zinfandel. The nose and palate are full of dense, red fruit and the wine drinks like a red in that it has some tannin. Dashe says this tannic structure comes from the Petite Sirah in the blend. In many ways, with its full body, this is a serious Rosé; it's also unique and deserving of a place at the table.
