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.
