2017 Sparkling Rosé, Yolo County
The 2017 vintage of sparkling Rosé is very exciting. Not only does it don our pretty new packaging, but this blend of grapes gave me the exact bouquet, flavor and mouthfeel I wanted in this bubbly. Aglianico is an unusual grape to put into sparkling wine, but when I tasted the grapes, I knew it would make stunning rosé, and give me the carnation pink color I wanted. Reminiscent of Champagne, this rosé spent 10 months “en tirage” and boasts aromas and flavors of strawberry, brioche, subtle notes of blackberry, pomegranate, watermelon, and raspberry.
