Dianthus is a "next level" kind of California rosé. It's Mourvedre-based, with Grenache and Counoise, all estate-grown from vines propagated from budwood from the legendary Château de Beaucastel. The 2019 recently scored 93 points with the folks at Washington Wine Blog, with the note: "The 2019 ‘Dianthus’ Rose is a scintillating new effort that is truly one of the top Rose wines you will find in California. A blend of Mourvedre (52%). Grenache (33%) and Counoise (13%), the ‘Dianthus’ shows off its vibrant pink hue, delivering rich red rose petals and guava tones that collide with suggestions of damp earth and orange blossom aromatics that all take shape in the glass. The palate is marvelously textured with a silky mouthfeel. Layers of red fruits dance with citrus rind, rose water and shades of damp stone on this highly complex palate. The combination of richness, viscosity, tension and length is truly marvelous in this thrilling new Rose. Marvelous to enjoy in its youth, the 2019 ‘Dianthus’ Rose will enjoy a long life ahead of it, picking up early tones as it ages." Recent vintages regularly garner 90 and above—notable for a rosé, to be sure—with Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck, and even the conservative point-scorers over at Connoisseur's Guide, too.
