Wine Creek Ranch Dry Creek Valley
A labor of "amour", our dry Provençal-style Rosé melds five Rhône varieties to create one singular sensation that is refreshingly crisp and always hard to resist. As is our custom, the fruit was handpicked at varying times depending on each varietal's readiness and maturity as an element for Rosé. This intentional approach gives us fruit that is intense in flavor, lower alcohol, and balanced acidity for Rosé, as opposed to red wine. We waited until all the lots completed fermenting to ensure that each component's character and contribution could be best evaluated and integrated into the final blend.
The 2019 vintage has a gorgeous soft pink coral hue. Grenache is the anchor providing a perfumed nose. Syrah adds herbal notes. Counoise contributes seductive floral and red fruit characteristics. Mourvèdre brings complex spiciness. Petite Sirah weaves in bright fruit. In the glass, you'll be mesmerized by notes of cranberry, rhubarb, raspberry, red currant, watermelon, black pepper, Texas Ruby Red grapefruit, strawberry, and a thirst-quenching acidity in the finish to cleanse your palate. Perfect on its own, try it with salad Niçoise, red beet risotto topped with goat cheese, chorizo scramble, oysters, green salad with avocados and pine nuts, or Rochetta cheese.
