“A blend of grenache and syrah with a touch of cinsault, mourvèdre and vermentino. Stylish and quite complex rosé with summer fruits, lime-citrus and floral notes. Bone-dry with impressive power and a lingering finish.” – Bob Campbell MW

“Pale orange-pink. Mineral-tinged red berry, honeydew and pit fruit aromas show excellent clarity, and a suave floral note emerges as the wine opens. Palate-staining peach nectar, raspberry and melon flavors are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. The mineral quality resonates on an impressively persistent finish that features a lingering floral quality and a hint of tarragon. – Josh Raynolds, Vinous

“Stunning complexity, length and intention. Fresh cedary spice weaves through fleshy peach fruit; granite dust through wild cherries; lavender through nectarines. It’s full yet fine, unfurling into every corner of the palate, saturated with stony minerality and sweet bitters. On the finish, a very subtle salty alpine-strawberry sherbet buzz. Up there as one of the beautiful rosés I’ve tasted.” – Tamlyn Currin, Jancis Robinson

“A nice and heady rose. It has a savory vibe with smells of herbs and raspberries. There is a slight creaminess on the mouthfeel. Great wine for a cheese plate or lean meats.” – VinePair

“Serious, suave, impressive: This deep, mineral-accented pink wine from a biodynamically farmed estate (at which you can stay in luxury) is a consistent winner.” – Bloomberg 50 Wines Under $50
