This is a perfect rose. It's got a great pithy citrus rind texture, super flavor intensity, it's fresh, and it's got enough but not too much weight. Flavors all over the place - citrus and stone fruit, date-like dried fruit richness on the finish. Great balance of fruit sweetness and acid. A gravelly finish that manages to both quench thirst and leave wanting. This is a 10 minute bottle of wine, so it gets 10 points from me.

@mikelucia has done it again, this time with barrel ferment in used Chard barrels then aged in stainless. Great ripeness and restraint (reconcile those as you will). Cliff notes: 12%, elegance, perfect for the table - or knocking back on any warm day on the horizon.

Appears copper in color, bringing ripe melon, apricot, and tomato. Tangy and silky.
