Staff Pick Notes

It may not be Rosé season per se but good wine never goes out of season. This is definitely a good wine. Made from primarily Grenache this Rosé is delightful and compelling with sustained freshness and a lively herbaceous hinting at various herbs but never quite committing to one. Pair with soft cheese and good time.

Glossary

Grenache

The Grenache grape (a.k.a. Grenache Noir) produces relatively pale, fruity red wines that often stop just short of sweetness.

California

The berries are a bright, almost bluish-red color with assertive aromas of roses, lychee fruit, and...

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it will produce. Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...
