Patina Rosé NV

A non-vintage Rosé - I'm not completely sold on the concept I must admit. Using older parcels seems to weigh this down just a little for me. That vibrancy I'm looking for just isn't there. It's almost as though it wants to wear the ballet shoes but is stuck in concrete boots.



A fruit salad of sorts - a blend of 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc (38/4), plus 2015 Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (27/22/9).

Craisins, tangelo, freeze dried strawberry and mandarin peel. Bone dry but one dimensional. Nothing here to completely entice me. Crisp acid with a lick of spice on a lingering finish.

Drink now.
