The folks at Banshee take their rosé production very seriously. They employ hand harvesting and whole cluster pressing of grapes (in 2016, the blend is Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, Barbera and Grenache Gris) 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 bottle. From Banshee: "The wine is a pale rose and peach combination in color a... Read More »
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 father, winemaker Joel Peterson (Ravenswood). Morgan has done exceptionally well in the eyes of the press, and us here at K&L, with his label Bedrock. His wines are thoughtfully crafted small production bottlings from old vines located in “heritage” vineyards throughout California. Hard to come by, these Bedrock wines already have a loyal and rabid following that just keeps growing year after year. We are luc... Read More »
Every year, Heitz produces a limited amount of their Grignolino rosé. With its vibrant pink hue, vibrant wild strawberry and orange zest flavors, this wine isn't just refreshing, it's a pleasure.
From Robert Sinskey's certified organic vineyards in Carneros, this Vin Gris of Pinot Noir is a rosé made the right way. Grapes were night-harvested before being whole-cluster pressed and vinified as rosé from start-to-finish rather than being bled off of a vat of crushed grapes destined to be a red. The result is a rosé with energy and vigor rather than something flabby or insipid. Fine Pinot Noir fruit from an excellent estate vineyard is dedicated to this limited bottling, and the results are never disappointing. From the winery: "A bright, vibrant, p... Read More »
This wine comes to us from one of the Bilbro brothers of Marietta Cellars, which makes the fan-favorite, unbelievable value blend called "Marietta Old Vine Red." Idlewild Wines is Sam Bilbro's venture, and while it may appear to be the most alternative out of the three, don’t call it hipster. Idlewild focuses primarily on Italian varietals from high-elevation vineyards in Mendocino County. And while Sam has a grassroots, natural approach to his wines, there are no gimmicks or trends here. His straightforward, Old World approach results in wines with both... 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 »
This wine from the Pisoni family of brands is one that goes beyond great taste--it also benefits a great cause. From the producer: "Lucy Rose was born in 2003 when winemaker Jeff Pisoni made only two barrels. Shortly after, the Pisonis decided they should make more and donate a percentage of the sales to the fight against breast cancer. The association of pink Rose wine with the pink ribbon representing breast-cancer awareness seemed like a perfect match."
Also the source of rare Trousseau Gris from the likes of Wind Gap and Jolie-Laide, the Fanucchi vineyard grows the only 10 acres of the "unicorn" variety in the state of California. Two Shepherds' version is fermented on the skins for five days, resulting in an unusual, category-blurring orange-pink refresher.
Natural wine is the order of the day from Broc Cellars, with this wine coming from vines that are over 100 years old.
