Pale salmon in the glass. Beautiful, pure nose of blood orange, peach pie spice, kiwi and wildflower are nicely uplifted on a minerally, aromatic spine. Perfectly smooth and balanced on entry fresh cherry-kiwi tension haloed with coriander spice notes in a long, pristine, lip-smackingly juicy finish.
Provencal in style yet anchored by Bordelais varieties, this rose is a study in elegant precision. Retailing for just under $40/bottle under its original label and produced by one of Napa’s original cult Cabernet’s from some of the finest Bordelais fruit, this St. Helena estate-derived rose is one of the best in Napa Valley.
