2015 Entre Nous Rose of Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville
The uncommon grace and harmony of our Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé make this wine a rare gem among California rosés, and a worthy homage to its Provençal cousins. Most rosés are created using a saignée method and more as an afterthought, but ours is a dedicated labor of love. We allocate one of our best blocks of Cabernet to be farmed and harvested by hand specifically to suit this wine. Superior fruit quality, concrete egg fermentation, lees aging and classic méthode provençale techniques create a rosé that is simultaneously delicate and ethereal, yet richly layered.
Our pale salmon-colored 2015 rosé is exceptionally light, bright and vibrant. Crisp aromas of peaches and citrus on the nose give way to the intense freshness of pomelo, lemon zest, orange peel and notes of crushed rock on the palate. This wine’s refreshing acid and supple texture meld with the barest hint of new French oak, carrying the wine to a crisp, clean, and delicate finish.
