2018 Isabel's Cuvée, Grenache Rosé, Magnum
One bottle is rarely enough when it comes to our Rose so here's 2 in one big bottle!
Isabel's Cuvee is our oldest running wine, the 2017 is our 14th vintage making our Rosé from the historic Gibson Ranch in the McDowell Valley. Our block dates back to the late 1800’s and is home to the oldest planting of Grenache Gris in the United States. This is our first year bottling magnums to be enjoyed with larger groups and celebrations.
Tasting Note: The nose is an exploration of strawberries, guava, and rosewater. Fresh and juicy like a homegrown clementine with the crisp, savory, and tangy profile of an underripe peach and a subtle strawberry sweetness.
