2017 Fesstivity Brut Rosé
"...this bottling offers a warm, creamy array of baked bread and dough aromas flecked with grapefruit zest on the nose. It’s tight and bright on the palate, loaded with a pithy tangerine flavor." ~ Wine Enthusiast
"...captures all of the natural exuberance of the Sta. Rita Hills. Bright, fresh and sculpted, the Rosé has so much to offer. Hints of cranberry, citrus and white flowers add energy throughout." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
"...The pink/salmon-hued effort offers a pretty, nuanced bouquet of mulled strawberries, orange zest, dried herbs, and savory spices to go with medium-bodied richness, a supple, elegant texture, bright acidity, and a great finish. It should keep nicely for 2-3 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
Generous passion fruit, raspberry and a hint of orange zest won't be missed on the nose. Persistent bubbles dance in the flute, while bright tangy flavors of cranberry, raspberry, grapefruit are mellowed by a touch of vanilla on a pleasant palate that finishes with a clean, quenching acidity.
