2011 L'Aventure Estate Rose

70% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Grenache - Perhaps the most “classic” Rose Stephan has made, this is a wine of excellent structure. A pearl- rose cast, reminiscent of Vin Gris, colors the wine. Fresh, shadowy, subtle aromas of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre are soft in the nose. Supple flavors of strawberry/ rhubarb and blueberry skin run elegantly along the palate in a tight line. This rose is not a typical “drink me yesterday” fruit chew, rather, will accompany many foods, and will impress non -rose drinkers with its quality and noble style.
