2017 Belle Glos Oeil de Perdrix Pinot Noir Blanc Sonoma County
This is a special offering from Belle Glos. The grapes were grown specifically for making a rose wine.
Tasting notes from the winery: This wine’s delicate pink and copper hue makes it a poster child for the classic ‘eye of the partridge’ color. An abundance of fruit aromas carries through to a fresh, seductive palate where flavors of pink grapefruit, ripe strawberry, watermelon and lemon rind are rounded out by an opulent and dairy-laden core. Gentle notes of fresh peach and white pepper add character. While the bright qualities of this wine approach flinty minerality, there are also rich fruit notes to balance out the firm acidity. This rosé boasts a long, satisfying finish.
