The 2021 Decoy Rosé is bright and pleasing from start to finish. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of red fruits, earth, and sandalwood. Try it with fresh salmon and avocado rolls. (Tasted: July 7, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
The Decoy Rosé was inspired by the great Rosés of Provence. Unlike many Rosés, which are made as a byproduct of bleeding off juice from red wine fermentations, the grapes for this wine were specifically harvested at lower Brix to make a dry Rosé. To further preserve the wine’s beautiful aromatics, pure fruit flavors and crisp refreshing mouthfeel, it was fermented entirely in stainless steel.
This aromatic rosé draws you in with tantalizing layers of white peach, honeydew melon and tropical lychee. On the palate, it shimmers with cool-climate verve and energy, offering mouth-filling flavors of grapefruit, Meyer lemon, and orange blossom that culminate in a bright, beautifully focused finish.
Blend: 65% Syrah, 14% Grenache, 11% Carignan, 10% Vermentino
