Lot 647 comes from a producer that has long been purposefully crafting biodynamic rosé from 100% Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley. Assembled from 47.5% whole cluster, 47.5% destemmed, and 5% saignée, the first two components bring the pretty fruit and lovely minerality while the latter adds a touch of richness and depth. This is rosé as it should be – conscientiously produced for maximum complexity and delicate nuance, while still delivering mouthwatering refreshment. Elegant, fresh, and keeping in the French tradition, this is about as close as you’ll get to Provençal-style rosé produced here in the US.
not a rose drinker, but this one was OK, a little too dry for me
My Kind of Rose'!
This is a top-notch rose! While I like the rose's of Provence, I prefer this wine with its good body, beautiful color and plenty of fruit! We had this with our Thanksgiving dinner (Turkey and Country Ham) and it was delightful.
This will be my favorite rose' if it lasts!
Not a favorite
Was disappointed in this rose. Maybe the fall weather was not the best time to drink it. Will probably not order it again but it did have a good price point.
Not too light - very nice!
Not too light - a nice bright and refreshing taste without being too sweet. Perfect for warm evenings. Would definitely recommend!
Almost provence quality
Strawberries. I get the blood orange too. Crisp. Has more depth than a lot of US roses without being heavy. Stands up up to the roses you can find in any Provencal country town that sadly don't get exported.
Solid rose, great value under 15
Pleasing color, a little darker than a classic French rose. I smelled slightly unripe strawberry, honeydew, and mild citrus. Crisp with a nice balanced acidity to the taste with a lingering faint blackberry flavor on the palate. Finished drier than I thought, though that's not a negative since I tend to prefer drier wines. Great value for an old world style rose with coveted (albeit over-hyped) Willamette Valley grapes.
A New Favorite
Love this Rose and the beautiful, deeper color. Not too sweet. Perfectly refreshing in my hot, humid environment. Highly recommend.
A refreshing rose for the end of summer
We drank this during the summer and enjoyed it immensely. Now that summer is winding down, I think it's still a good refreshing rose to close out the warm weather.
Great summer wine!
This rose perfectly represents the new modern roses that are refreshing, bright, crisp and with lots of flavor and fruit without the cloying sweetness. This is a great value and the perfect cure for summer humidity and long days at work. It's so fun buying great wines at everyday drinkable prices; get a case!
Light and refreshing.
Really liked it.
