Mission Briefing


Rosé colored glasses

Summer is here, and if there is a better summertime Cali Rosé for under $25, we haven’t ever met it!

Today marks our 5th successive vintage showcasing this wine. We love it so much that we’ll keep going back for the newest vintage for as long as they keep making it.

Today’s 2012 Swanson Vineyards Rosato is a delicious, juicy, refreshing rosé of Sangiovese. This vintage shows a little more fruit than recent vintages, without losing its crisp and refreshing edge.

Stock up, dear Operative… on the fun and tasty goodness that is today’s very special wine.

P.S. Did we mention that Oprah loves this wine?!

Tasting Profile


With a hue that reminds us of fresh Coho salmon, this wine is deeply colored with very fine clear edges.


Hibiscus flower, geranium leaf, plum and strawberry jam, watermelon hard candy, and subtle pomegranate.


Soft, elegant, and refreshing, with flavors of ripe Alpine strawberry, white peach, red currant, Rainier cherry, dried red rose petals, and sandalwood.


Very long, with fruit and flower petals dancing on your palette in even proportion.


Try this wine with grilled salmon or a Thai pumpkin curry.
