The feeling I get when I walk through a midsummer farmers market, salivating over fresh samples of the season. bright red chandler strawberries, blushing clingstone peaches, juicy sun-kissed nectarines… Though its pale rose in color and has a soft round palette, this Rosé has complexity and layers that can rival a full bodied red wine. Its array of mid-summer fruit is complimented by its white stone mineral finish.
This eclectic blend of Syrah, Zinfandel and Carignane are all harvested from Paso Robles Westside in the Templeton Gap AVA. Extreme temperature swings from night to day during the harvest season helped create this fruit forward wine from California’s Central Coast.
