2018 Heringer Vineyard Clarksburg Dry Rosé of Barbera
Barbera •Heringer Vineyard
Paint It Pink
We might all be stuck at home, but they can’t keep us out of the backyard! Spring is here (people in New England might debate that), which means pink wine in your glass while you’re poolside lounging, day drinking, home schooling, bocce ball rolling and al fresco eating. So today, we’re unloading a mountain of rosé for you!
Leading off with this crisp Dashe Cellars for 50% off! Vineyard-designate rosé you say?? What does that mean for you? It means these guys take their pink juice seriously. You should too because at $12.50 you get a lip-smacking, fresh-berry packed bombshell.
This stuff POPS from the glass with bright aromatics of strawberry, raspberry and jack fruit. There’s a wonderfully intoxicating floral component of subtle rose and honeysuckle. That all translates directly through on the palate as well with tasty red fruit notes of berries and watermelom…and is that a limestone minerality too? Fabulously complex! It has crisp acidity that carries the fruit, but much rounder mouthfeel and more complex body than any white wine.
The proprietors of Dashe have an all-star background: Mike worked the legendary 1989 vintage as an intern at Château Lafite-Rothschild and did stints at Cloudy Bay, Schramsberg, and Far Niente, before settling in at Ridge Vineyards, where he worked side by side with the legendary Paul Draper, while Anne interned at Château La Dominique in Bordeaux and Chappellet Winery in Napa, before making brandy for Remy Martin. Since 1996, Dashe Cellars has adorned the finest wine lists around the world, at most of the top restaurants in the US, including The French Laundry, Chez Panisse and Per Se.
Twelve bucks!! And there’s more delicious finds in the store - grab yourself a mixed case, tear open the box when it lands on your doorstep and dive in!
Absolutely picture perfect - this rosé has a gorgeous deep pink hue, almost dipping into fuchsia territory.

Just what you’re looking for in a rosé: It has crisp acidity that carries the fruit, but much rounder mouthfeel and more complex body than any white wine.
Perfect refresher to be paired with an appetizer like prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe.
