Made mostly from the saignee of all our grapes on the vineyard and a little Merlot that went straight to the press, this bright pink rose is a fantastic pairing for warm days in the sun. A nose of ripe raspberry and carnations, the wine strikes a perfect balance between acidity and roundness, being both refreshing and having a depth of flavor. Cherry, fresh flower, and a hint of spice carry the mid palate to a finish of citrus blossom that will go well with a light cheese and fruit plate. A perfect wine for the back patio.
Notes of lemongrass and passionfruit pour out of the glass. The body is fleshy with tropical fruit, and has just enough balance in the texture to not be overbearing. That fleshiness rolls into the finish, showing a nice wet stone characteristic that carries for a long time. Great for a relaxing time, or pared with lighter dinners, this wine is meant to be drunk within the next year.
Nose: Lemongrass, Passionfruit
Food: Assorted cheese plates, halibut
With a nose of Pink Lady apple and strawberry, the 2018 Vincent Vineyards Sweet Rose is like drinking a melted strawberry popsicle. Even with the residual sugar, the higher acidity balances this wine beautifully and chilled down, this wine screams to be drunk on a lazy summer day.
Uncommon to California concrete tanks became all the rage in France after WWll due to the high prices of oak and stainless steel. The concrete, porous unlike stainless steel produces a slightly softer acidity. Notes of lemongrass and grapefruit linger on the palette. With a crisp bright clean finish, this seems to be the perfectly balanced white Bordeaux varietal.
This Sauvignon Blanc was named Platinum Blonde not only after her sister but also by its resemblance to the story of Goldilocks, as it was composed of three different picks of our estate Sauvignon Blanc. One early, one middle, and one late. This creates a layered effect of a little bit acidic and citrus fruit, a low melon body weight, and a little bruised melon. This creates a wine with linear acidity, but very real juiciness in the center. Some pear. A little stonefruit on the finish.
