2012 Bechthold Vineyard Rose
Rosé •Bechthold Vineyard
Today’s wine left our tasting panel a little speechless. While we taste many fantastic wines, today’s Onesta Wines 2012 Bechthold Vineyard Rose showed depth and character that put it another realm entirely from the typical Rosé. We love it when a wine exceeds our expectations, and, boy, did today’s wine accomplish that!
After one sip, we were convinced we had a super high-end wine from Provence. We were surprised to learn that today’s gem comes from the famed Bechtold Vineyard in Lodi. Light and refreshing, with a firm mouthfeel and solid body, today’s wine hits all the high notes.
Winemaker Jillian Johnson has created quite the stunner with today’s wine. Prepare to have your mind blown!
An incredibly beautiful salmon pink, with a near copper glint throughout the glass.
Very delicate and perfumed, with not-quite-sweetened strawberry, apricot, and grapefruit zest quickly followed by white flower notes, dried rose petals, and a touch of oaky spice.
Distinctly elegant on the palate, with an almost Provencal quality, this lush wine is highlighted by strawberry, pineapple, and mango laid overtop hints of lavender and subtle sweet spice. Absolutely delicious.
Crisp and refreshing, with a wonderful body and mouthfeel, this wine is downright silky on the finish.
Light and zesty crab salad.
