Matthiasson, Rosé, California 2015

Aromas of ripe Meyer lemon, fresh herbs and hints of the marine preface a supple, juicy and refreshing wine; a calling-card wine from Steve Matthiasson, one of Napa’s leading organic viticulture gurus, and his wife Jill Klein. An unusual blend of 36% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre, and 4% Counoise, with malolactic fermentation blocked to preserve acidity.

Alc 11.60%
