Crisp and fruity, notes of watermelon, cantaloupe, and cherry are accented by orange zest, marine salinity, and saffron. I think it’s one of my favorite rosés ever.

Such an interesting grape for CA but this really drinks like a charm.

Easily a favorite rose. Combines the bright house style with a nice creaminess off the Touriga Nacional.

A light, clear salmon color in the glass. Floral dominate nose along with strawberry, orange peel, and honeydew. This is what they would call an elevated Rosé and it shows. Clean, pure fruit and amazingly dry. Very crisp and citrusy but above all, this is an actual interesting Rosé. Made from Touriga Nacional, this is exceedingly drinkable and so much fun. The palate follows the nose with dried herbs mingling with all of the beautiful fruit here. Such a delicious wine.

Not totally sure how I feel about this wine. On the one hand it's lovely and pure and clean, with decisive, cleansing minerality that gives focus and drive to its bright, fresh flavors of tangerine, sesame, and sea salt. On the other it's just a little lacking--in structure, in acidity, and in intensity as well. I like it a lot, don't get me wrong. We tasted this wine from tank though and were totally blown away by its symmetry and completeness. Perhaps the filters simply claimed their share.
