Color & Sound Pinot Noir Rosé 2018 | Exclusive Fantastic Napa Rosé
Color & Sound Pinot Noir Rosé 2018 presents as an alluring, deep blood orange color with ruby hues. While offering distinctive aromas of wild-picked strawberries, dried apricots, and echoes of wet-stone minerality tinged with high-toned spices and just a hint of dried tarragon. Richly layered with creamy waves of white peach, melon, apricot, and blood orange, laced with a core of salty minerality and a decadently long and spicy finish. Most of all, unapologetically Californian. Notably, with the ripeness of a warm West Coast sun. And the verve and energy of taut Carneros acidity. So, enjoy now through the autumn of 2021.
So, yields were generous in 2018. As a result, the winemaker had set aside an entire lot that came off their flagship blocks. However, after fermentation, it wasn’t settling down. Rather it was angular and larger than life. Just the opposite of their delicate, Provence-like rosé. But now, It needed a new home, we are so glad we got it. The Color & Sound Pinot Noir Rosé 2018 is a robust, spicy, unapologetically Californian rosé with the ripeness of a warm West Coast sun, and the verve and energy of taut Carneros acidity.
Like floating on billowy, cotton-candy-like clouds
“I’m floating on billowy, cotton-candy-like clouds,” is how our negociant described a rosé that we felt was “pure, precise, and energetic.” So much for all our years of education and experience writing wine descriptions.
