Kelley & Young Kathleen Rose 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Pink is back and its even better! We are so excited to announce the release of the 2010 Kathleen Rose. Our 2010 Kathleen Rose is an amazing example of a Bordeaux style rosé. The grapes for the Kathleen Rose are sourced from our family’s Robert Young Vineyards and are picked and produced as a rosé. It is a true Meritage made in a rosé style. What that means is that we use the Bordeaux varietals Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the “big red” varietals; the wine is light but rich with huge flavors of wild strawberries, guava and just a hint of lime on the finish. Because it is made from these varietals, it has a lush, round mouth feel reminiscent of a wonderful Bordeaux, but with none of the harsh tannins. Also, because we pick it earlier in the season, the alcohol is lower than many other rosés made in the saignée style. Like our Sauvignon Blanc, it pairs wonderfully with the fresh foods we enjoy most here in Sonoma County. Because there is just a touch of oak on the finish, it pairs beautifully with foods like grilled salmon, pork and vegetables.
