ENTRE NOUS 2014 ROSE ESTATE OAKVILLE 750mL

This is a gorgeous property located right off Highway 29 in Oakville. Its vineyard architect is Dave Abreu, it's managed by Jim Barbour, and the wine is made by Philippe Melka (Lail, Gemstone, Dana). Here's the skinny on this property; over the winter and sping of 2010, we came across Kristine Ashe at several trade tastings. Everytime we sampled her wines, they were at the top of our lists. Heck, at the Oakville tasting, we felt her Cabernet was as good as many of the TRUE cult wines! If that's not an endorsement, then don't bother reading any further!

The delicate, bone-dry character of the Entre Nous Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé is a worthy homage to its Provençal cousins and a rare gem among California Rosés. Most Rosés are created using a saignée method and more as an afterthought, but this is a dedicated labor of love. They allocate one of their best blocks of Cabernet to be farmed and harvested specifically to suit a Rosé of this character. Superior fruit quality, stainless steel fermentation, lees aging and classic méthode provençale techniques create a wine that is simultaneously delicate and ethereal, yet richly layered.

Bright and youthful with scintillating summer peach, rose petal, grapefruit and citrus aromatics. Because we time the harvest of our Rosé-dedicated Cabernet vines specifically for this wine, the integrated mouthfeel has a crisp, gentle acidity. Generous and appealing fullness on the mid-palate leads to a long finish, with the fresh minerality of wet stones. Only 298 cases produced!
