Another big-time winner, and one of their larger cuvées of just over 9,000 cases is the 2012 Brut Rosé. This is a blend of 76% Pinot Noir and 24% Chardonnay, of which 33% was barrel fermented. This wine is ripe, broad, savory, shows tiny bubbles, comes across fresh with kirsch-like aromatics and flavors. It's dry, medium-bodied, zesty and exuberant. (RP)
A lovely and delicate nose is comprised by notes of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and apple that are liberally laced with yeast nuances. The delicacy of the nose is complemented by the lilting and elegant flavors that possess good delineation and where the sense of refinement is enhanced by the relatively fine mousse, all wrapped in a dry, yeasty and refreshing finish. This is an excellent rosé and while it could certainly be aged to good effect, it is all but irresistible now.
Coppery pink, this is a floral, strawberry-scented rosé focused on pinot noir from Sonoma County. There’s dynamic freshness in the wine’s lemony acidity and the scents of strawberry leaves and bread dough. Those elements contrast sweeter notes of white peach and Rainier cherries. It’s clean and lasting, refreshing in the end.
A bright copper color and citrus aromas are followed by tart cherry and pink-grapefruit flavors in this fruity and crisply balanced wine that is a late release in magnum only. It has a refreshing, vibrant mouthfeel and clean finish and an unusually strong stream of bubbles that keeps going 30 minutes after pouring. *Cellar Selection* (JG)
