Winery Tasting Notes: “This elegantly constructed rosé is pale salmon pink in color. Though the wine is primarily made from Chardonnay, subtle wild strawberry notes are detectable in the nose and on the palate from the Pinot Noir. The crisp, mineral Chardonnay is softened by the lush and aromatic Chenin Blanc. The result is a lively wine with a lot of character, without any aggressive or astringent notes. This is a wonderfully versatile rosé ideal or pork and salmon dishes, or simply on its own as an aperitif.”

Winery Tasting Notes: “Our J Brut Rosé sparkles with a vibrant pink salmon hue and offers layered aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, Fuji apple, rose petals and a savory swath of toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, an elegant mouthfeel combines with flavors of ripe raspberry, blood orange and blanched almonds underlined by lively acidity and steely minerality. I recommend pairing it with roasted beet and goat cheese salad, or a simple plate of smoked salmon canape and Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog cheese.”
$49.95/bottle – 50% OFF on any purchase!
