"Extremely pale orange. Racy and precise on the nose, which displays vibrant red berry and citrus fruit character. Brisk and light-bodied on the palate, offering strawberry, orange zest and white pepper flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. Closes on a spicy note, displaying good length and a touch of candied flowers. -- Josh Raynolds"
Wine Spectator 88
"Arose petal hint leads off before giving way to pretty white cherry and peach flavors. A subtle talc thread supports the sneakily long and stylish finish. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Rolle. Drink now. 65,000 cases imported.—J.M."
The classic Provence Rosé profile is what every serious winemaker around the world attempts to mimic and for good reason. Our goal is always to find the delicate balance between floral, herbal, wild red fruit (not overly ripe) and acid. Most years, one aspect or another dominates so we work on enhancing the other qualities, but that was not this year. In 2017, the fruit naturally found a beautiful balance between red fruit and the acid structure without either overpowering each other, or the savory, citrus and mineral core. We’ve also made big advances in vineyard management and huge investments in presses and tanks in the winery. And, while we don’t own the vineyards that our fruit comes from, we have been working with these same growers from the beginning and collaborate closely as if we were partners in each other’s business.
The blend is the following: Grenache 52%, Syrah 23%, Cabernet Sauvignon 14%, Cinsault 8%, Rolle 3%.

Dry andcrisp, a perfect rose.
Love this Rose - I found this locally for $10 a bottle and when I went to get more, it was gone! I wish you could ship this for free, I would buy 2 cases! This is dry, not sweet and very light on the palette. Perfect with any seafood dish or just on a hot summer night. One of the best I have had. Very pale in color, just great value.
