2007 ROSÉ

CaliforniaRose NV small

This year we made our rosé from grenache, mourvedre and a touch of syrah and sauvignon blanc. It is barrel fermented in older barrels, and then bottled fresh in late winter.

Rosé has become quite stylish lately, and for good reasons. There isn’t a more versatile wine-you can have it with fish, tamales with hot sauce, or a pork sandwich-it doesn’t really matter because it tastes great with everything. I think another reason people like it so much is because it is informal-you get dressed up to drink Champagne-but with rosé you can leave your overalls on, have a big glass, and still feel like a king.
