Field Stone Rosé of Petite Sirah 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lightly herbal and dusty on the nose with mashed raspberry and salted plum notes. A bit soft on entry, this is rather rich in the mouth with a nice texture that offers some light tannins for support. The flavors are rather delicate with a nice mineral vein running through plum and sour cherry fruit. Ends with a nice note of rhubarb. The flavors here are lovely if a bit subtle, on a frame that has a nice bit of meat to it. Finishes with mineral crispness and a lovely wash of red-fruited acid. 90pts

Field Stone Winery was founded in 1977 with its own celebrated estate vineyards dating back to 1894. It is owned and operated by John & Katrina Staten and their family. Praised by visitors for its hospitality and unique rustic beauty, the winery is a fascinating, small, underground facility carved into a picturesque oak knoll in the midst of its rolling vineyards in Sonoma County’s beautiful Alexander Valley. Known primarily for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and century-old vine Petite Sirah, Field Stone is also recognized for its select, handcrafted quantities of other award-winning, low-production wines: Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Chardonnay, Rosé of Sangiovese and Vintage Port. We have also introduced our new Convivio companion wine, made from our Merlot and Cabernet, from which we donate a portion of the proceeds to Clinica Alianza, a nonprofit medical center serving farmworkers and their families in Sonoma County. Field Stone’s winery and vineyard estate is located conveniently on Highway 128, the key artery linking northern Sonoma County and Napa Valley (the winery is just seven miles from Healdsburg and fourteen miles from Calistoga). Its cozy and inviting underground tasting room is open from 10 to 5 seven days a week. Its picnic ground, under its spreading oaks, has been called “one of the best spots for a picnic with a vineyard view in the Alexander Valley” Read less

A cornucopia of tropical punch aromas - pineapple, orange, melon, blackberries, cherries. Umami heaven! Banana comes forward more on the body, which is smooth and lightly acidic. Really nice feel on the finish.
