2017 CARNEROS ROSÉ OF PINOT NOIR, REINKE VINEYARD

The 2017 vintage is light salmon in color with strawberry, raspberry cream, watermelon, and floral aromatics. Lush and soft through the mouth, it delivers notes of stone fruit/fresh apricot, and a crisp, dry finish. It’s an elegant and well-balanced rose that captures the silkiness and freshness of Pinot Noir.

It is my most pleasing attempt yet at fashioning a Rose from the Pinot Noir grape. That’s not fake news.
