Eric Kent Sonoma Coast Rose
From the winery:
Rosé…the antidote to the winter blues and the ultimate celebration of sunny skies and warm weather. Take your pick – we find plenty of reasons to drink it all year ‘round!
No surprises here as we have most definitely dialed in our target style on this wine. Vibrant and juicy Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir plays the leading role, with Syrah and Grenache adding spice and structure. All the components are barrel fermented separately — an uncommon practice and quite a bit of extra work — but the proof is in the bottle: a dry, complex wine with unexpected richness, layering and depth.
Fairly serious for a rosé, but still a joyous experience in every glass, this one’s built to compliment a wide range of foods. It also evolves nicely for a few years if you don’t get to it right away, which means you can lay in a good supply. We made less this vintage, so the time is now!
