This is from the talented team at Foley, a Rhône blend of Syrah, Cinsault and Grenache. Pale in color, the wine is extremely dry, with high acidity and nuanced flavors of rose petals, dried herbs, grapefruit zest and dusty white pepper. One of the best rosés of the vintage, it’s terrific with bouillabaisse.
For the second vintage in a row, this is one of the best rosés in California, and it’s not all that expensive. Made from Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, the wine shows the elements of cool-climate Santa Barbara. Dry and crisp, it has subtle flavors of cherries and spices.
