2015 Estate Saignee Rose

Columbia Valley AVA

The 2015 Lodmell Cellars Saignée  is medium strawberry in color and a nice dry wine.The touch and feel of the wine is its best note; it has a sensuous, elegant, rather civilized mouth feel, absolutely European.  The fruit on the palate is led by strawberry and rhubarb, a hint of cherry, and floral notes of rose. The acidity is cooperative throughout, piping in at the refreshing finish with a deep tang of pomegranate. The wine has excellent ripe fruit extraction and yet at the same time presents a pleasant lightness appropriate in a rosé.
