Villa Creek 2018 RoseIn Fine Spirits
Cris Cherry is perhaps one of the undiscovered winemaking heroes in California. His blend of 70% Grenache 20% Carignan 10% Mourvedre is more like drinking a rose from the Languedoc or Roussillon, or even Spain than from the Provence, Rhone or Bandol regions. A long, rich, ripe taste and a very lingering strawberry finish. The exciting thing about the Villa Creek Rose is how light on the palate it is at the start, and how full on the mouth it is on the finish.
