Bright pink color with juicy strawberry nose; dense and fresh with good balance and style. 100% Pinot Noir at 12% ABV.

The winery calls this, "The Juice of Love." Well, perhaps, especially if you really like pure Pinot Noir. This non-vintage Gruet Sparking Brut Rosé is fresh and fun; well textured, crisp but not overly acidic. I see this one as a New World bubbly. Medium pinkish color, nice beads; bright strawberry aroma, plenty of fruit; medium bodied; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; crisp and well define strawberry flavors; smooth aftertaste.

This nearly garnet Rose, like all our non-vintage sparkling wines, is aged 24 months en tirage. It has a lovely, bright floral bouquet with hints of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. On the palate, it is rich and fruity in a dry, Brut style. The flavor of berries continues on the palate, revealing more strawberry, raspberry, cherry.
