Brick Barn 2017 Grenache Rosé
Santa Ynez Valley AVA
275 Cases Produced
• 92 Points – Wine Enthusiast magazine
• Double Gold Medal – San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition
A historical property located in the westernmost frontier of the Santa Ynez Valley, Brick Barn Wine Estate traces its roots to the early 1970’s when it served as an Arabian horse farm, complete with a 36-stall brick barn designed by an Italian stonemason. Today, the property has fulfilled its destiny, becoming a premium wine estate with 35 vineyard acres and other portions of the ranch dedicated to organic vegetable farming and cattle ranching (the brick barn has also been re-imagined as a winery and tasting room). Brick Barn’s 2017 Grenache Rosé is classically inspired, balancing crisp elegance with bright California flavors. On the nose, aromas of pomegranate, watermelon and lemon rind mingle together, while the soft, silky palate complements with radiant flavors of dried cherry, tangerine, and kiwi, all concluding with trailing notes of lime zest.
Tonti 2018 Old Vine Zinfandel Rosé
Russian River Valley AVA
Old Vine Zinfandel
109 Cases Produced
• 91 Points + Gold Medal – Tastings.com (Beverage Testing Institute)
Peter Tonti’s interest in wine began in the 1940’s when he was just a kid, watching his Italian immigrant father make wine with an old hand cranked press in their family basement. It was a tradition that instilled in Peter a lifelong dream to honor his father’s vision and to one day establish a family winery of his own. Peter finally started Tonti Family Wines in 2014, crafting a range of Zinfandels from the Russian River Valley. The vines are all farmed organically to assure the highest quality of fruit is achieved each vintage. Tonti’s 2018 Old Vine Zinfandel Rosé is refreshingly dry with aromas of cassis tisane, raspberry and rhubarb and a crisp, dry body with notes of lavender and white grapefruit zest coming through on the finish.
Tolosa 2017 Pinot Noir Rosé
Edna Valley AVA
100% Pinot Noir
• Rosé Special Selection - Gold Medal Wine Club
One of Edna Valley’s premier family wineries, Tolosa Winery is nestled amongst the northwest-southeast running volcanic hills of San Luis Obispo County, which is a frontier for growing complex, cool-climate varietals - especially Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It is vintner Robin Baggett’s mission to discover Edna Valley’s best pockets and to create exceptional wines that are the purest expression of this distinctive appellation. Tolosa’s 2017 Pinot Noir Rosé is light, shiny pink in color with a platinum rim. On the nose, notes of rose water, white nectarine, tangerine zest, kiwi flesh and orange blossom excite the senses and set the tone for the flavor-packed palate of blood orange, flowers, strawberry seeds, and a hint of freshly picked pineapple. Nice acidity and a silky texture make this wine seamless from start to finish.

The Deerfield Ranch 2018 ‘Checkerbloom’ Syrah Rosé offers refreshing aromas of berries and herb tea, while the palate shows structure and focus with fruity yet dry flavors.

Embrace the Dry Side of Rosé - California style!
Color, texture and flavors in a Rosé are influenced by the method by which the wine is produced, the amount of time the grapes are left on their skins, and the types of varietals used, among other things. Rosé can be produced through two methods - saignée and maceration - both relying on the skin contact to impart color, flavor, and texture to the finished wine. When using the saignée method (meaning “bleeding” in French), Rosé is produced as a byproduct of red wine. Grapes are harvested with the intention of making red wine. A portion of the pink juice is removed at an early stage in production, which is then fermented separately to produce Rosé. In the limited maceration method, red grapes are picked with the express purpose of making Rosé, often earlier and with higher acidity than when picked to make red wine. When the grapes are crushed, the skins are left in contact with the juice for a short period of time - usually between 12 and 24 hours - until the juice achieves the desired color. Then the entirety of the juice is pressed off and fermented to make Rosé.
Nearly any red wine grape can be used to make Rosé (and sometimes even grey-skinned grapes like Pinot Gris and Grenache Blanc!). Although many winemakers stick to more traditional Southern Rhône Provencal varietals for Rosé like Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, others are experimenting with different grapes, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or Pinot Noir. We’ve tried to showcase an array of different styles and varietals available in order to provide an overview of Rosé’s variety and a snapshot of its form in California.
Dry Rosé is the ideal wine for warm weather, long days, and lingering sunshine - although we’ve embraced it as welcome and refreshing sipper year round! A flexible drinker, Rosé pairs ridiculously well with a number of dishes - from light, fresh salads to seafood to meatier dishes like fried chicken, burgers, and barbecue ribs - or as an aperitif.
