According to the winery: "With the color of freshly cut cantoulope, our 2015 “Tous Ensemble” Rosé evokes distinct aromas of racy citrus fruits and delicate white flowers. On the palate, juicy watermelon and fresh strawberries are supported by lively acidity to give this gorgeous wine a food friendly structure. The 2015 vintage will be remembered for high quality and lower yields. The growing season started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in late winter and early spring. Cooler temperatures in May caused some uneven fruit set that contributed to s... Read More »
Winemaker Andrew Jones, of Field Recordings Wine fame, brings a line of varietal wines in tall boy cans under the name Alloy Wine Works.
The rule around the Heitz house has long been, the rosé must be ready by Easter! Wine enthusiasts have shared the Heitz Family's affection for this unique wine since 1961. The Grignolino (pronounced green-o-lean-o) Rosé is produced with a northern Italian varietal known in the Piedmont region as the "little strawberry." The original vineyard, since replanted to the Heitz home ranch, was called by its former owner, "The Only One." This rosé is typically fruity and enticing, but very dry on the palate, just the thing for spring salads with goat cheese, or ... Read More »
Natural wine is the order of the day from Broc Cellars, with this wine coming from vines that are over 100 years old.
Connoisseurs Guide: "Freshness rather than fruity volume is the major message here, and, if the wine is light on richness, it gets good marks for vigor and its close-to piquant, red cherry and strawberry traits. Its acidy inflection becomes more pronounced at the finish, and it may prove to be a little too tart for some tastes, but it will make useful drinking with entrees that call for a crisp Rosé with decidedly zesty acidity as a mate." (7/2016) Vinous: "The 2015 Rosé Hopkins Ranch is crisp and refreshing, with plenty of cranberry, orange zest and floral notes. The 2015 is absolutel ...Read More »
Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrant in sugarplum and cherry-vanilla, this summery wine uses Grenache, Merlot and Petit Verdot to string together a dry, likable quaff high in acidity and light-bodied from start to finish." (8/2016)

The 50 by 50 Estate is a twenty-three acre property situated southeast of the Atlas Peak AVA and north of the Wild Horse AVA. More specifically, it sits on the Monticello Road incline in the Wooden Valley of Napa, California. Starting at a roadside elevation of 830 feet, it meanders pleasantly down to 600 feet. The gentle slopes are covered with forward gravelly loam, a rich volcanic soil that drains well and lends itself perfectly to the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot varietals that are presently being planted there for the purpose of pro...

Banshee changed things up a bit in 2015, and for the first time sourced their rosé from Mendocino County when they found some exciting new vineyard sources. Banshee takes their rose production very seriously, and employs hand-harvesting and whole cluster pressing of Pinot Noir grapes designated for rosé from the beginning, rather than bleeding some runoff juice of a wine destined to be a red. The primary new vineyard source for this aromatic and bright rose is biodynamically farmed, and the attention to detail from start to finish shows through in the bo... Read More »

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2015 Rose Mourvedre Vogelzang, and it reminds me a rose from the seaside village of Bandol, in the south of France. Giving up lots of strawberry, orange blossom and spice, it has notable richness and texture, yet is fresh, vibrant and lively. Made from 95% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache, drink it over the coming year. (JD)" (8/2016) K&L Notes: From the producer: "A vibrant coppery pink, tons of savory minerality, pomegranate, white raspberry and floral notes all hop from the glass. Minerality continues to lead on the palate with bursts of blood orange, fresh p... Read More »
90 points Vinous: "Pale, bright orange. Pungent red berries, orange pith and candied rose scents are sharpened by a suggestion of spicy white pepper. Smooth and fleshy yet lively as well, offering juicy red currant and strawberry flavors that show a refreshingly bitter edge. Clings very nicely on the finish, leaving behind suave floral and spice notes. (JR)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: As with all of Tatomer's wines, production is very small, so grab this excellent rosé while you can! According to the winery: "A lively, fresh rosé with an elegant yet firm texture. Its color is light pink/salmo... Read More »
Producer Note: "The release of the 2015 Red Car Rosé of Pinot Noir is upon us. Harvested at a cool 21º brix and immediately whole cluster pressed, our dry and aromatic Rosé is a true vin gris, fermented like a white wine without skin or seed contact. In 2015, the wine is bone dry at 12.9% alcohol, in a dashingly light shade of pale melon-pink and with an aromatic profile of tangerine oil, pink grapefruit, and bing cherries. Cool-climate West Sonoma Coast vineyards give the wine its hallmark style, with the biodynamically-farmed Bybee Vineyard in Sebastop... Read More »

According to the winery: "This flavorful energetic and completely dry Rosé pairs beautifully with all sorts of dishes, from appetizers, to mildly spicy foods, and everything in between. We like to enjoy a glass with olives while we chop vegetables and fire up the grill for the main courses. The production numbers are down significantly in 2015, but the quality is terrific. We suggest stocking up as this wine has been selling out earlier and earlier each year. The excitement is already building for the 2015, a worthy successor to the last several vintages... Read More »
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Adam's 2015 Rose sports a light pink color to go with pretty, lively notes of orange blossom, citrus, salty minerality and a hint of red fruits. Medium-bodied, elegant and straight up classy, drink this high quality Rosé over the coming summer months. (JD)" (5/2016)
From Napa's Mason Cellars, Pomelo is the fun, fruit-labeled and no-fuss screw-cap wine fit for casual spring and summer occasions. The crisp rosé is made from Grenache and Syrah in the southern Rhone style.
90 points Decanter: "Named in honour of Lulu Peynaud, the legendary chatelaine of Bandol’s Domaine Tempier, this Mourvèdre rosé bursts with watermelon, spring flowers, citrus and spice preface a fresh, supple wine with a savoury finish crying out for a Provençal feats. Morgan Twain-Peterson is one of the great exponents of California’s old vine heritage, and this bottling hails from a vineyard planted in the 1940s! (WK)" (5/2016) K&L Notes: Morgan Twain-Peterson may be the most talented young winemaker in United States. How could he not be, growing up in vineyards beside his well-known f... Read More »
2013 Sine Qua Non "...and an Eight Track" Central Coast Rosé
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Sine Qua Non "...and an Eight Track" Central Coast Rosé. SQN's rosé style is darker and more full-bodied than a typical rosé, and it also carries a longer drinking window. Praise from Wine Advocate: "There are few greater success stories in wine than that of Sine Qua Non’s Manfred Krankl. Austrian-born and showing up penniless in Los Angeles in 1980, he went on to create one of the greatest wine estates in the world today by sheer talent and work ethic." (JD, 08/2015)
This lot contains the following items:
2013 Sine Qua Non "...and an Eight Track" Central Coast Rosé (qty: 2)
End Date: Sep 25 2016 10:00AM PT
This Rose is a blend of Sangiovese for its tannin, structure and aromatics as the backbone (40%), Dolcetto for its lush fruit character (30%), and Barbera for its great color and acidity (30%). This balanced blend of Italian varietals result in a fabulous, fresh wine with dried strawberry on the nose, and crisp, aromatic hints of rose petals, basil, kaffir lime, blood orange, and watermelon on the palate.
SQN's rosé style is darker and more full-bodied than a typical rosé, and it also carries a much longer drinking window. The wine carries pronounced savory and smoky characteristics to complement the more expected notes of berry and melon.
