109 Mile Rosé Grenache and Tempranillo, 2020

Produced by Cavaletti Vineyards

The Mediterranean climate of Los Angeles County provides the perfect growing conditions for producing crisp rosé. This whole-cluster pressed blend of 52% Tempranillo, 46% Grenache, 1% Roussanne, and 1% Mourvedre has aromas of blood orange, rose, red apple, orange sherbet and strawberry that lead into a palate of candied melon and ripe peach. 91 Points and Editor's Choice - Wine Enthusiast.

Rare Varietal

Tempranillo produces leather and tobacco notes in red wines but in rosé it creates fresh strawberry and peach.

Interesting Winemaking Technique

The perfect soft finish on this rosé was created through barrel fermentation and aging in neutral oak barrels instead of stainless steel.
