Temperatures across the country are starting to rise and that means it’s finally time for rosé. And while many will reach for bottles from the Provence region of France, almost every wine region in the world is now making the pink liquid, and much of it is worth your attention.
One such locale is the central coast of California, where the rosés made from Pinot Noir are some of the most delicious and refreshing you’re going to find. One producer that’s worth looking out for is Sanford Winery and their Santa Rita Hills Rosé of Pinot.
This salmon pink rosé is absolutely gorgeous in the glass, throwing off aromas of fresh strawberries, cherries, and even a bit of pink bubble gum. It’s a delectable rosé that on the palate provides bright fresh red fruit flavors with a nice kick of acid to lift the wine and make it feel incredibly light and refreshing. It possesses a flavor profile that sticks with you, and begs for you to take another sip. It’s a rosé we plan to drink all season long, or at least until Sanford Winery runs out. Which they will.
