Benevolent Neglect Counoise Rose California 2020
In Napa the saying goes, "When life gives you wildfires, make rosé". A little bit of a joke, but this Counoise was forced into being picked early and the end result is a strawberry fueled wine with a brightness and a savoriness, which finds itself in uncharted territory. Too light to be a red wine and too bold to be a rosé. It's like the Antika Terra Rose at just over $20. Bright acid, rhubard, strawberry, mushroom, dried roses, beets, and red cherry all come to life on the palate.
