2015 Caldwell Syrah Rosé
Second wine and first rose we tried at Caldwell Vineyards with JFC himself. Reddish pink and clear. Some savory characteristics on the nose but covered in floral notes. Moderate acidity (6.5/10) with a slight sweetness to it and layered with red berries, especially strawberries. Medium bodied rose with great structure and a long finish. No reason to wait!
All the fruit comes from the Caldwell Estate Vineyard, more specifically the Kreuzer Canyon Block. Syrah led blend with 92% Syrah, 4% Tannat and 4% Malbec. Aged for 5 months in 100% Stainless Steel. Only 236 cases produced and 13.8% alcohol.
2016 till 2019.
