Festival and Feast Wine Company
2012 Rosé of Pinot Noir
California: Sonoma County
Party, party, party!
Made with fruit from [REDACTED], one of our favorite Pinot Noir vineyards, today’s Festival and Feast Wine Company 2012 Rosé of Pinot Noir is a bright, refreshing and delicious wine. We’ve been sworn to secrecy (we’re spies after all) and can’t tell you where the grapes came from but trust us, one the vineyard sources would surprise and delight you.
Somewhat understated at first, this wine opens up as it warms, revealing softer flavors and more complex aromatics.
If you’ve never enjoyed a pink wine with your holiday meals, now is your chance. This lovely Rosé of Pinot Noir is a very food-friendly wine that will be at home with a wide variety of festive cuisines.
Rose petal pink with perfectly even coloration, from the core of the wine out to the glinting edges.
Lovely and lively, with aromas of raspberry hard candy, strawberry juice, dried rose petal, persimmon, cranberry and mild citrus.
Hibiscus tea, cranberry juice, tart cherry, young white raspberry, white currant, green apple and white minerals.
Long, bright and lingering with fruit flavors yielding to flinty minerals.
Prawn salad with pear and arugula would be a spectacular treat with this festive wine.
