Tasting Notes

Each year John makes a “Provence” style Rosé featuring the Cinsault grape, a dark purple, large (like small plums) varietal featuring very thin skins. This wine serves as our annual reminder that Spring and Summer are just around the corner! 
 
The 2020 vintage was harvested by hand last fall on September 15th with perfect sugar and acid levels to create the crisp, refreshing Rosé we like to produce. The fruit was delivered in a 54-foot refrigerated truck the same day it was picked, and was immediately loaded into our press as whole clusters. The Cinsault was pressed for several hours, essentially juicing the grapes, with minimal skin contact during the process & then stored in a 1,500-gallon chilled tank where fermentation took place over a 30-day period.
 
When tasting the sugar juice (23% sugar) John was reminded of his Grandmother’s homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie - delicious! Once fermentation was complete the wine produced was 13.8% alcohol, 0% sugar, with punchy, red-fruit aromas and the strawberry & rhubarb flavors are still predominant. This year’s vintage also includes 2% Grenache and 3% Syrah, contributing a touch of fresh citrus to the nose and palate, rich, soft colors & a silky finish.
 
The Cinsault Rosé is the first wine of JM's 2020 vintage to be released; a year we will all never forget but the memory of it made just a little sweeter by the release of this fan-favorite wine. Enjoy and live well!
