Description

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.

Wine Critic Reviews
"A delicate shade of salmon in the glass, this tightly woven bottling begins with aromas of chiseled granite, grapefruit pith and wet clay on the nose. The palate picks up sourdough flavors alongside rose petal and grapefruit zest elements." ~ Wine Enthusiast "...has a good bit of richness, but the aromatics aren't as expressive as in the other wines in this range. Perhaps the recent disgorgement explains some of that. The Brut Rosé is 100% Pinot, and that very much comes through in its feel." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous "Its salmon hue is followed by an attractive nose of ripe cherry and strawberry fruits as well as savory herbs and spice. It's also nicely textured, medium-bodied, and balanced, with bright acidity and a clean finish." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
