"Lioness" Rosé, 2019

Produced by Lion Ranch Vineyards & Winery

The 2019 Lioness is an engaging blend of Grenache Noir, Cinsault and Syrah which plays on the character of these three varietals to present a very food friendly wine, that’s much, much more than a pink summer chiller. Initial crisp acidity gives way to a smooth balanced mouthfeel. Pomegranate and cherry fruit transforms to a grapefruit / citrus finish, refreshing the palate, urging you to take another sip!
