2018 Rose of Syrah

I made this Rose in the traditional Rhone style, designed to taste like Syrah but happens to be pink.  I learned how to do this from a winemaker friend of mine from another famous winegrowing region here in Northern California, whose Rose I admired so much, that I decided to make a similar one myself!!  This Rose gets all of its colors, flavors and aromas with zero skin contact time as we gently whole cluster press the fruit as soon as it comes in from the vineyard.  This wine tastes great right now but will also age for a couple of years.  Remember to take the time to enjoy family and wine!!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Clear, slightly pale garnet color reminiscent of red wine. Deep, earthy aromatics with notes of strawberry and black cherry. Low acids and very low tannins round out a plum taste on the palate. Finally, there is a long, balanced finish

Vineyard Notes
Very ripe Syrah grapes meant to be made into an age-worthy red wine, but gently handled to make a full-bodied Rose wine.
Production Notes
Whole cluster gentle press with very ripe Syrah grapes. 100% stainless steel, slow fermentation
Food Pairing Notes
This Rose is unique in that it "feels" like a red wine (Syrah) that happens to be pink so pairs well with foods generally associated with red wines - but also is delicious to be enjoyed as a Rose wine on its own
