2012 Sonoma Coast Rose
Rosé •Fort Ross Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Fort Ross-Seaview
We love our warm weather wines here at TWS - one of the (many!) benefits to living and working in sunny California Wine Country - and nothing pleases us more than coming across a delicious rosé. And that’s exactly what Agent Red discovered in today’s Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery 2012 Sonoma Coast Rose.
Today’s wine was produced using the French saignée method, which required constant love and attention from winemaker Jeff Pisoni to get the flavoring and color just right. His effort was rewarded with an outright delicious wine, with one of the most beautiful color profiles we’ve ever come across.
Looking to take your rosé experience to the next level - without breaking the bank? Look no further than today’s exceptional - and exceptionally well priced - wine!
An absolutely gorgeous ruby red throughout the center of the glass, with a subtle coppery ring around the edge.
Fruit forward and beautifully aromatic, with fresh strawberry, raspberry, and tangerine slowly transitioning into hints of vanilla bean, white tea, and dried rose petals.
Bright, crisp fruit flavors of watermelon, wild strawberry and nectarine lead the way on the palate, with secondary hints of herbal tea, fresh berry bramble, and a subtle undertone of zingy dried herbs.
Well rounded, rich, and quite serious, this is not your usual afternoon sipper of a Rosé. If you’re ready to jump up a class, this is the Rosé for you.
