14 Jul New Rosés from Paul Lato, Bandol
We just got in the newest rosé from Paul Lato! You may remember the Pro Bono rosé we had last year made from Grenache & Syrah. It was stupendous. This year, Paul decided to do Pinot Noir with stunning results. We also received more rosé from Bandol, Nimes, and Domaine Charvin in the Rhone Valley.
2015 Paul Lato Rosé “The Manga Girl” Santa Barbara
On Sale $36.99
A deeply colored rosé that fits Paul’s style completely. Cherry, raspberry, and fresh herb notes follow on the palate with a startling complexity. Lato isn’t afraid to make a full bodied wine with all the weight commonly associated with California Pinot.
La Bastide Blanche Rosé, Bandol
On Sale $21.99
Brilliant orange-pink. Displays vibrant, mineral-accented blood orange and redcurrant scents and suggestions of succulent herbs and pungent flowers. Fleshy, spicy and dry, offering bitter orange pith and berry skin flavors given lift and cut by juicy acidity. Lingers with strong, mineral-driven authority, leaving a suave touch of honeysuckle behind.
