  • From the Winemaker:

    Rosé wines are very unique and different representations of a red grape varietal. Ranging from an almost water white light pink blush to a deeply tinted garnet color, rosé wines typically lack the tannic backbone and dense color structure of their red counterparts, yet rosés possess a similar aromatic character and signature flavor profile of the red version. Stylistically, rosé wines can be very dry or lightly sweet, depending on producer and grape variety used. The sweeter styles lend themselves to summer time quaffing, while the drier rosé wines often show better when paired with food. Either way, a good rosé is a fun interpretation of the usually serious red grape.
  • About the Wine:Our South Coast Winery Merlot Rosé is certainly a deviation from the usual red Merlot found in a bottle. This rosé is a blend of grapes harvested from two different vineyards, Wild Horse Peak Vineyards, in Temecula and the other, McManna Vineyards, located in Monterey county. This wine possesses the signature Merlot character that dominates our red versions, but with a lighter touch. Brilliantly pink-hued, this Rosé is full bodied and loaded with exotic sweet-tart cranberry, strawberry and citrus characters. A refreshing touch of sweetness lifts the wine’s character and rounds the mouthfeel; while the bight, crisp acidity gives balance and an exhilarating finish, making this wine a pleasure to drink from the moment the cork is pulled.

Have not been a wine person in the past. But, after visiting South Coast for a weekend, they helped me find this wine. Turning my taste buds around. This is a beauty. Do yourself a solid and try this wine.
