Lots of earthy and oaky things on the nose--als0, some floral hints. Very enjoyable on the palate. Not the most full-bodied PS I've ever had. Some berry fruit. Good acid tartness. Tannin is there, but does not suck me dry. US$13.69 at Costco in Chino Hills.

Our signature bottling. Blackberry and dark chocolate aromas with a touch of anise and white pepper. This robust yet elegant wine is full-bodied with black cherry, blueberry, hints of toasted hazelnuts and sweet vanilla. Well-managed tannins produce a long, silky finish with luscious black fruits to the end. - Winery


Winemaker's Notes:

Our grapes were harvested at night to ensure cool temperatures and to minimize oxidation of the fruit. Winemaker Natalie West created this rosé’s gorgeous pale pink color using the gentle “saignée” method. First, she de-stemmed the grapes and allowed them to sit in tank for 12 hours at 45 degrees to extract some color. After removing the skins and seeds, she cold-fermented the juice, then transferred the wine to neutral French oak barrels, where it aged for six months until bottling.

Tasting Notes:

Bud break came early in 2010 and this vintage was colder than many in Russian River’s recent history. Plenty of fog and very little heat filled the summer days. This weather produced a deliciously aromatic, fruity and very dry rosé. Ripe strawberry and raspberry on the nose burst into bright red cherry, citrus, fig and a hint of creamy vanilla. Features well integrated acidity and a long, refreshing finish.
