Mission Briefing

Codename:

Altraed State

You’ve been asking for a great Rosé for Spring and Summertime sipping and we’ve found a fantastic one for you!

Today’s 2012 Fiore Rosa Napa Valley Rosé is a deeeeelicious saignée (pronounced sonyay) style wine that had our whole tasting panel doing cartwheels.

At 50% off, this limited availability wine is expected to sell out.

This wine is beautiful on the nose, with fresh aromas of strawberry, white cherry, lemon, orange blossom and white tea.

On the palate, this Rosé is bold and complex, loaded with fruit and earthy goodness. Strawberry, rose petal, orange rind, white tea, pineapple, dried fall leaves, and slate.

The winery’s delicious Cabernet Sauvignon commands a rich $80 per bottle. If you love today’s Altra Rosé, let us know and we’ll see if we can’t score you a deal on their spectacular Cab.

A note on saignée winemaking: Like red wine, rosé gets its color from the skins of red grapes. The depth of color varies, depending on the grape varieties used and the length of time that the skins are in contact with the juice. This can be less than an hour to as long as several days.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Stunning copper hues, with perfect clarity.

Smell:

Strawberry, white cherry, lemon, orange blossom and white tea.

Taste:

Strawberry, rose petal, orange rind, white tea, pineapple, dried fall leaves and slate.

Finish:

Soft on entry, then slightly grippy as plush tannins take hold, giving the wine an elegant feel. Fruits are out front.

~
Soon after the appearance of the fresh fruits, a slow-spreading dryness takes hold at the center of the palate, spreading a plush dryness outward to the edges of the palate, lips and cheeks.
Pairing:

Enjoy this fine Rosé with melon and prosciutto, or salmon, Thai food, Indian food or nearly anything else. This wine is very flexible and very food friendly.
