The Vice Rose’
Don’t let this wine fool you by its color, this rosé is 97% Sauvignon Blanc after all. At The Vice, we encourage our team members to embrace their vices as part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Our cellar master may have taken it a bit too far the night of November 22nd, 2019. He accidentally racked a barrel of Diamond Mountain Cabernet into one of our Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc stainless steel tanks. While we suspected that he may have been tasting too much wine throughout the day, he later admitted that another vice was to blame – marijuana. The result was beautifully coral pink and surprisingly delicious.
Expect the nose to be tropical with notes of passion fruit, gooseberry and pomelo. Give it another swirl – undertones of white peach, bubble gum and a hint of mint may lure you to take the long-awaited sip. On the palate, the entrance is lively, crisp and bright. Flavors matching the nose start to settle in, reminding you that you are sipping a Sauvignon Blanc. However, the finish is marked with red berries and a kiss of strawberry confirming that you are, indeed enjoying a rosé.

A beautifully wet winter set up a nice crop for 2019. Spring was later than usual due to the cool wet weather, but summer was warm and uneventful with only one heat spike over 100 degrees, making for ideal conditions for ripening Pinot Noir. Grape maturity and the natural sugar accumulation in the grapes progressed at the same pace giving us perfect fruit from which to make this exciting wine.
This wine has a California sunset color with aromas of red berries and spring flowers. The wine completely fills the pallet with mouth-watering savory flavors of crisp acidity, minerality, summer strawberries, wet stones and a touch or orange blossom. The freshness keeps you going back for more and the extraordinary long finish is all bright summer fruit.
