2020 Cruel Summer Grenache Rosé
Yakima Valley | French Creek Vineyard
What would Summer be without bright, fresh, beautiful rosé? The answer is simple: cruel. Don’t let summer without good rosé happen to you!
“Composed of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre, this is made in a Provençal style. Light copper-pink colored, it possesses lovely aromas of strawberry, tangerine, star fruit, pink roses, summer flowers and whiffs of garrigue and white incense. With brief skin contact, the flavors are lightly extracted but well delineated, with notes of grape skins, tangerine peel and minerals. On the back, the wine takes a vivid turn, evoking a Côte d’Azur afternoon, with touches of fraise and citron and light spice on the dry finish.”
18.5/20 points, Rand Sealey
