Why A Dry Grenache Rosé?

A dry Rosé is the first flower to bloom in the wine world. It's the first wine to be released from the previous year’s harvest. It will tease you to relax by the pool during those hot afternoons and balmy summer evenings reflecting upon the many pleasures of life.

A true Rosé is made from a saignée, which is an early “bleeding” of the tanks. This juice has only flirted with the contact of the Red Grenache skins that it once came from. This short, but timely interlude gives our Rosé its delightful color and fruity aromatics. Dry Rosé is a way to enjoy the characteristics of a red wine without being weighted down by its typical tannins and oak flavors.

We trust that you will find our 2008 Grenache Rosé to be one of the most flexible warm weather wines. It can accompany you on a day picnic or be right at home with a late evening grilled salmon served on the terrace.

Purchased some of your Grenache Rose when we stopped in Paso on the way back from the Santa Barbara Wine Festival back in July. Wonderful Rose one of our favorites this past summer. Still selling it for $10/bottle?
