“The release of our Sonoma Coast Rosé is always one that we look forward to as the harbinger of warm weather, outdoor gatherings and sharing food and wine with family and friends. This year, especially so!
Consistent with the EK house style, the 2021 is as immensely satisfying and deeply flavorful as the gorgeous electric color suggests. Cooler climate Sonoma Coast Pinot delivers loads of lifted bing cherry, strawberry and watermelon while smaller additions of Syrah and Grenache bring spice, raspberry and black cherry, pushing depth, structure and flavor to the next level.
Designed to be much more than a simple quaffer, roughly 50% of the juice was native fermented in older oak barrels with the balance raised in stainless steel to balance texture with freshness. We put as much work and thought into our Rosé as we would any of our other more “serious” wines and the final result skews more towards chillable red territory than super pale pink or white wine substitute.
High demand and (sadly) limited quantities this year ensure a quick sell out so be sure to grab yours early before it disappears!”
