From the winery: "With a gorgeous hue of pale pink, our 2014 Rosé jumps out of the glass with crisp red fruit flavors. The supple texture is backed by a vibrant freshness and appealing acidity, making this a wonderfully versatile food wine. The 2014 vintage started dry but abundant February rain came just in time to break the winter draught. Warm spring temperatures encouraged an early budbreak that kept vineyard development ahead of schedule through the entire season. Our harvest was condensed beginning September 3rd and concluding on September 24th. Fo... Read More »
From Robert Sinskey's certified organic vineyards in Carneros, this Vin Gris of Pinot Noir is a rosé made the right way. Grapes were hand-harvested at night 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. Fine Pinot Noir fruit from an excellent estate vineyard is dedicated to this limited bottling, and the results are never disappointing. From the winery: "This Vin Gris of Pinot Noir has a luminosity that cannot be pinned down with one or two descript... Read More »
From our friends at Field Recordings, we bring you the Alloy Wine Works first Grenache Rosé in a 500ml can! That's right, people- 3/4 of a bottle for a crazy price, in an easily portable, very share-able can! It's 12.5% alcohol and ridiculously easy to drink. Hand-harvested from beautiful Central Coast fruit, this pretty rosé shows strawberry, watermelon, peach and vibrant acidity, making this a no-brainer for picnics, trips to the beach, the park, hiking, camping, tailgaiting- or just at home on the patio! The can is here- get on the boat! (-Sarah Covey... Read More »
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top rosés from Santa Barbara County that I was able to taste for this report, Palmina's 2014 Botasea Rosato di Palmina sports a light ruby/orange color to go with fabulous notes of strawberries, orange blossom and spice box. Perfectly balanced, supple and refreshing, with plenty of texture, this is rock solid stuff to buy by the case ... It also represents a terrific value. Bravo! (JD)" (6/2015)90 points Antonio Galloni: "Pale orange. Fresh pit fruits and red berries on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. Shows very good clarity and lift, with a spicy nuance emerging on t ...Read More »
From the winery: "Like the last few years, this rosé comes from vines planted prior to 1940 (or perhaps we should say prior to FDR's third term). Picked specifically for rosé, at lower potential alcohol and whole-cluster pressed, this pale and perfumed rosé belies its lighter color and has plenty of density. It bears a strong resemblance to the 2010 and 2011, both of which are still showing nicely now. The backbone of the wine is the ancient Mourvedre--with all of its coniferous perfume and spice--with dashes of Cemetary Vineyard Carignane for salty crun... Read More »
91 points Antonio Galloni: "Lurid reddish-pink. Ripe cherry, raspberry and rose pastille on the nose, along with suggestions of blood orange and Asian spices. Sappy, concentrated and sharply focused, offering intense red fruit and bitter orange pith flavors that spread out on the back half. Combines power and vivacity smoothly and finishes with excellent clarity, lift and floral persistence. This fleshy but energetic rosé clocks in at 14.3% alcohol, which puts it on the high side for pink wines; I'd serve it as I would a lighter red, alongside strong cheeses, assertively seasoned p ...Read More »
Wine Spectator: "Sleek and lively, with floral raspberry aromas and crisp flavors of strawberry and smoky spice. Grenache and Mourvèdre. (Tasting Highlights)" (5/2015) K&L Notes: 68% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre. According to the winery: "If you’ve been to the South of France, then you already know what this wine is all about. A floral and fruity nose leads to a textured, full-bodied wine that can handle a much wider variety of foods than your average white wine. Our 2014 Rosé includes a higher amount of Mourvèdre than in recent vintages, which evokes similarities with the world’s best R... Read More »
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Editors' Choice * This is made from Pinot Noir grapes grown in two unlikely places in the Napa Valley: the Foss Valley near Atlas Peak and Spring Mountain. There is incredible deliciousness going on in this ever-so-lightly hued wine that is vibrantly crisp in grapefruit rind and earthy cranberry and raspberry. With the slightest salinity on the back palate, it remains thirst-quenching and memorable from start to finish." (6/2015)
Here's a light, copper/salmon-hued, lively and fresh rosé from Tatomer, the up-and-coming Central Coast force for all wines good and Teutonic. Best known for Riesling, they've made this pink wine from 100% Spätburgunder, aka Pinot Noir, from the top of the John Sebastiano Vineyard.
It's already after Labor Day, and you know what that means: white shoes and pink wines are back in style. Start your summertime collection off with a zippy Syrah-based rosé from the Ojai Vineyard, in a style reminiscent of the South of France.
Wine Enthusiast: "This wine tends toward an orange coloration, and shows aromas of warm watermelon, a touch of cantaloupe and even some orange rind. The flavors are very lively, if a little sour, with tangerine peels laced across the cotton-candy warmth." (9/2015)
From the winery: "The 2014 vintage boasts a clean and refreshing mouthfeel, full of delicious strawberry and raspberry flavors, with hints of green tea. It’s hard to resist the bright cherry and rhubarb aromas that leap straight out of the glass. This flavorful rosé is sure to pair well with grilled chicken thighs, asparagus-cheese tartines, herb-infused flatbread or roasted beet salad. With just over 250 cases produced, it’s best to stock up before it’s too late!"

Connoisseurs Guide: "A curious and unconventional mix of chocolate, cherries, citrus, and chalk steers this one well off the expected path, and ample acidity, obvious heat and nominal tannin converge to effectively push any real fruit from the stage. The wine comes with more ragged edges than it does promise, and its scarce fruity heart warns against hopeful keeping." (6/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Immediately telegraphs its Petite Sirah-ness in the midnight black color, dense tannins and extracted blackberry jam and chocolate flavors. It would be a rustic wine, except for the beautifully-sculpted ...Read More »
