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.
Light and Drinkable
While I am not typically a white/rosé drinker, I found this wine to be exquisite. It has a lighter taste and it is quite enjoyable!
A Winter Rose?
If there's such a thing as a Winter Rose, this is one (I'm writing this...and drinking this...in February). Bright, bold (for a Rose), distinct strawberry notes, eminently quaffable in cold weather. Had this with garlic pasta (and I'm talking two heads--not cloves, heads--of garlic!), and it was delicious! Forget Provence for this season, check out Oregon!
I’m a big fan of the Pinot noir from Chehalem, and was quite interested in trying a rose from there. In a word or two, fantastic and unique. Quite different than other roses I’ve had - you can definitely taste the Pinot from Chehalem influence. Tasty!
My dad loves a good glass of dry rosé . . . so when I shared this one with him, he was definitely pleased! As was I! Great wine for a great price!
Love this rosé! Super strawberry punch with some floral notes and a citrusy finish. I plan to age my other bottle. This is one of my favorite rosés and made this winter night feel like summertime.
dry, crispy berries and fruit--summer!
drier than many. lots of interesting fruits. some mineral character. really fresh tasting--a delightful reminder of summer.
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!
