Yes, this is a pink party wine — but it’s a classy pink party wine. This is a rosé you want to bring home to meet your parents. It deserves to be drunk alongside imported tinned fish, impeccably made, artisanal baguettes, and plenty of salted butter. If this rosé could talk, it would have a lilting French accent and quote Godard. Our approach to rosé is to think less about the varietal makeup and more about the style and vibe it conveys. So even though our cépage has changed – in past vintages, we have had varying percentages of Carignan and Zinfandel — the wine is still an evolution of its signature style. Our goal is a wine that is both fruity and savory, and every year we nudge the wine into the direction it needs to go in a quest for balance, deliciousness and refreshment. On the nose, the 2021 rosé is all about big red fruit and hibiscus. On the palate, it is packed with acid and minerality, with a bone-dry finish. It also texturally interesting as a result of destemming the zinfandel and pressing immediately.
