Zesty and ripe, but balanced with solid acidity. Offers floral strawberry aromas and crisp raspberry, peach and spice notes. Drink now.
Lucy is the little sister to Lucia. The Rosé is made by allowing the grape juice to sit on the Pinot Noir skins for a limited time. After picking up enough color, the juice is drained from the grape skins into barrels, where it ferments. The short skin contact results in a wine lighter in color and lighter on the palate. A perfect summer wine, Lucy's essence of Pinot Noir and fresh acidity allow for pairings with a variety of dishes. One dollar of every bottle of Lucy sold is donated to breast cancer research. Lucy Rosé is also donated to breast cancer research fundraisers throughout the country.
