    Varietal: Rosé

    Item no. 91621

    Winemaker's Notes:

    "96% Syrah. Its darkish rose color signals a deeper wine to follow, and this fairly rich, fresh and slightly juicy bottling comes through right on key. Its medium-full weight is balanced by vital acidity, and its bare hint of sweetness extends its fruit without reducing its desirability as a lightly vinous, thoroughly delightful partner to summertime meals."
    -Connoisseurs' Guide

    Pink is hot! Our Dry Rose was a big hit when we offered it exclusively to our Vintage Reserve Club members last year. Based on their feedback, we decided to release it nationally with this 2006 vintage. The name, Nellie's Garden, honors Nellie Stimson whose passion for gardening created the beautiful estate gardens at our Chateau in Woodinville. The wine is a special collaboration between our red winemaking team at Canoe Ridge Estate in eastern Washington and the white winemaking team at our Woodinville Chateau, located outside of Seattle. We receive the red fruit at Canoe Ridge Estate where Joshua Maloney, our red winemaker, gives it just enough skin contact for the perfect color. Then he drains the juice off the skins and turns it over to Brennon Leighton, our white winemaker, who then cold ferments most of the juice to keep all those fresh fruit and floral aromas. What a team effort and what a wonderfully refreshing dry rose! It shows beautiful fruit aromas and flavors of strawberry, cherry, raspberry with subtle spice notes. Enjoy this during your spring and summer parties and BBQ's. It's the perfect "deck" wine... versatile and fun!

    I have found that many Roses can be too bitter. In the fear of being too PINK WINE they over compensate and leave a pointy aftertaste that does no justice to either reds or whites. This does well being its own flavor and keeping its integrity.

    My first favorite is a small batch that runs out every year. This one is great, though, and I've tried them all.

    Caveat, 3 stars is highest rating I give wines under $20. Wonderfully dry and crisp and full of berries. Drank on a hot summer's day visiting friends in the countryside with our feet dangling in a pool under a shadetree. Beads of sweat all over the bottle were devilishly inticing

    I feel that pink wine should be lighter than this. The taste is not bad, a little fizzy at first and should be opened a while before tasting to let the fizz out. Tastes more like a light red than a Rosé.
