Rosé Blend

Cosentino Winery

The Rosé Lodi Rosé Blend 2016

Interesting hue difference between bottle and glass; amateur anthocyanin fans, take note. Light salmon pink hue with red overtones. Funky-sulfur aroma initially. No varietal info on label, but website reveals blend of 50% Pinot noir, 25% Syrah, 25% Zinfandel, and 3000 cases made. Grapefruit, paraffin and cranberry flavors, with some strawberry and creaminess in there. Dominant strawberry over time. Dry to bone dry. Slight skin astringency, but mouthfeel is otherwise thin. Not much reviewed here, but I like it. An excellent flavor and tannin backbone for a rose. Not as rounded mouthfeel as most roses, which differentiates it positively in my book. Crisp enough for food, barely, but for sipping or an aperitif, color me a solid fan. Hail Lodi! — 8 days ago

Le Clos du Caillou / Domaine du Caillou

Le Caillou Côtes du Rhône Rose Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

This superstar estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape also produces one of the finest versions of Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé. Impressively concentrated and focused, with spice-tinged red berry, mineral and citrus fruit flavors, the 2017 shows superb clarity. A great match with strongly seasoned grilled foods. $23.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2018) — 11 days ago

Seven Hills

Columbia Valley Dry Rosé Blend 2017

New vintage. Still primarily Cabernet Franc with small additions of Petit Verdot and Malbec. Pale salmon pink with tinge of orange in color, very good clarity. Herbal, mint, papaya and stone fruit notes in nose. Peach, strawberry and floral flavors, crisp, gypsum-mineral finish, fruity but dry. Moderate astringency. Tart strawberry aftertaste. Lovely complexity. Another winner from the class of PNW dry roses. — 15 days ago

Troika

Rose Wine Mendocino County 2015

Greg Ballington
8.9

Last winery on day two in Sonoma was Troika Wines with Jeff, Noel and Ari. Next up was their insanely dark Rose from the Split Rock Ranch in Mendocino County made up of 100% Grenache and fermented in neutral French oak barrels.

Deep magenta pink, almost a ruby red in appearance. Lush nose with notes of pomegranate, strawberries, under-ripe cherries and granite. Medium acidity (6/10) and medium plus body. A touch of sweetness on the palate with some iron, cherries, and watermelon. Medium plus to long finish. Drink till 2021.

$$ - Tasted at the winery with Noel, Jeff and Ari. Release price is $30.00.

Syncline

Horse Heaven Hills Rosé Blend 2017

Delish. Summer in a glass. Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Grenache. Wonderful nose and solid yet soft, fruit forward yet reserved. Letting this come closer to room temp allows the wine to open really well. Beautiful French-style Rose from a very small producer in Lyle, WA in the Columbia Gorge. — 16 days ago

Gorman Winery

42-39-56 Red Mountain Rosé Blend 2017

Columbia Valley designation, not Red Mountain. Website says eight varieties, mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot; already sold out at winery. Reddish orange, excellent clarity. White floral note in nose. Cherry flavor with length, orange flavor, dry, rounded mouthfeel, good acidity, lemon flavor with mild fine-grained skin astringency in finish. If you prefer a fruity but dry rose, this is your ticket. Good value. — 4 days ago
