An intentional Rosé made from Sacramento Delta Mourvèdre and Tempranillo, the Katnip has a brilliant, rusty peach skin color, a peppery wild strawberry, jasmine & melon nose and a spicy, dry, barely-fruity flavor. A dead-ringer for Bandol/Provence Rosè (no kidding) at a 2010 price for one of this quality, this is an easy pick-up for fans of this style. I’m particularly impressed by the combo of laser-focus, glowing acidity and pleasing flavor and texture…many say they have all this but not always the case. Raised in stainless steel barrels for 6 months. 13.3% alcohol. Only 50 cases made.
