Cayuse Vineyards Edith Armada Vineyard Grenache Rose 2016
The Cayuse Edith Rose 2016 is a rare and exceptional rosé that displays the precision and complexity of a top-tier red wine. Made from 100% Syrah, this wine exhibits beautiful aromas of wild strawberries, watermelon, and rose petals, with a hint of saline minerality. On the palate, it offers bright acidity, crisp minerality, and a long, satisfying finish. The winery's attention to detail and commitment to quality is evident in every sip of this beautiful wine.
This wine is consistently at the top of the class. Pale copper in color with a slight peach tinge, the aromas show appealing notes of wet stone and mountain strawberry along with a kiss of herb. The flavors are bright and vivid, while remaining light on their feet. There's a complexity seldom seen in this category. A long, citrus-filled finish caps it off. It's a big-time winner, bringing a sense of seriousness and irreverence at the same time. Sean P. Sullivan
