Left Coast Rose of Pinot Noir

Product Description

Dont be fooled by the pink hue, the Left Coast Rosé is a precision saigneé of 100% Pinot Noir; a red wine that drinks like a white, so please serve it lightly chilled. Aromas of strawberry and watermelon slide into flavors of just-picked Rainier Cherries, juicy pineapple and ruby grapefruit. A pop of ginger accents the finish; suggesting pairing with crisp, cool sushi or our fave, watermelon gazpacho. A warm weather superstar, this wine always sells out before summer is over.

Varietal: Rose

Region: Oregon

Region Description:

This state’s strict wine laws demand that variety wines must contain at least 90% of the named grape (except for Cabernet Sauvignon). The region’s cool climate comes from its proximity to the Pacific and its primary grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The latter wine is usually medium bodied, with aromas reminiscent of pears and apples and a surprising depth and complexity. Oregon Pinot Gris is a great food wine, and works especially well with seafood and salmon. Pinot Noir is a more expensive wine here, but that is because it can be such a difficult grape to grow that yields are inevitably low. The best Oregon Pinot Noirs are balanced, fruity and full.
