Our Rosé: perfect for summer evenings

Summer Evening from Spring Mountain

Happy summer! Cheers to BBQs, beaches and wine with friends!

The perfect wine for your summer fun just might be our 2021 Rosé.

It’s only the third time we’ve made a Rosé. You won’t see it on restaurant or retail shelves; it’s only available at the winery and from our website.

Winemaker Charlie Smith describes this special rosé:

It’s an extravagant, piercing color – such a vibrant pink it’s practically radioactive. It’s a reliable signal that something a little different is going on here. Aromatically the wine leads with notes of cherries, strawberry and attar of roses. The wine demonstrates real panache; it comes across as fresh and lively with an excellent marriage of bright fruit and juicy acidity. The mid-palate is silky and luscious and is anchored by a firm core of minerality. The finish is clean, crisp, flavorful, and refreshing. What stands out is its fun-quotient. It’s just a delightful glass of wine.

Our 2021 Rosé

Stu simply adds that “this is the best rosé you will ever taste!”

The blend is 33% Merlot and 67% Cabernet Franc, of course all sourced from our estate vineyards surrounding the winery at the top of the Spring Mountain.

Guests who have tasted the wine are telling us that this rosé is literally “head and shoulders above most of the rosés out in the world today.” It is not only a fabulous color but a sophisticated and complex wine on the palate.

Let us know what you think!

Please grab some while you can! We expect to be sold out by September 1.

And while you’re at it:
