Old Vines Mendocino County
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, salted butter, and impeccably made, artisanal baguettes. If this rosé could talk, it would have a lilting French accent and quote Godard.
Over the years, our rosé has seen an evolution. Early on, our rosé was 100% Carignan.Then it moved to a Zinfandel led blend. We think this vintage has the ideal balance. Our goal is a wine that is both fruity and savory. On the nose, it is all about big red fruit and hibiscus. On the palate, it is packed with acid and minerality, with a bone-dry finish. It’s texturally interesting, as a result of destemming the zinfandel. It has razzmatazz—a departure from the rosés of Provence.
