Our new Elance Cellars 2018 Rosé is the first pink wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Pinot Noir created under this brand. Why not celebrate this new release with a wine from our backyard, the Napa Valley? Red grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Pinot Noir are used in a technique called saignée, which is the concentration of the skins to grape juice ratio in the tank with a measured removal of a portion of its juice. This rosé has a beautiful pink-salmon color. The nose reveals notes of pear, raspberry, pomegranate and watermelon. The cooler climate of Carneros in south Napa provides nice acidity for a well-balanced wine.
There are no sharp edges in this lovely, fruity Rosé, which will pair well with grilled fish, curry-based dishes, spicy Thai recipes or savory pastries. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Chocolate Coconut Cake with Chocolate Glaze.
