Winemaker Ray Coursen Notes
Our 2008 Rosé is made in the style of the wonderful Rosés of Tavel, Lirac and Bandol. A small portion of juice is bled off (saignée) the freshly de-stemmed must. The juice is then allowed to ferment naturally to dryness for 5 months in experienced barrels, sur lie. This wine is wonderfully colored with a true pink hue and has delicate aromas of raspberries, nectarines, green grasses, rhubarb and strawberries with cream. On the palate it is full yet buoyed up by great acidity and plenty of fresh fruit character that keeps it crisp, lively, and ever so enjoyable. Rosés are a great companion to most foods and are just plain fun to drink. Be bold, set a trend, and drink the pink.
