One of my favorite aspects of wine made from grapes grown in Contra Costa County is that due to all of the sand in the soil, the wines tend to have strikingly rich and complex aromatics. Long story short, they smell great! This rosé is no different with gorgeous layers of peach, honeysuckle, and sweet pea flowers. While the Clements Hills rosé showcases the energy and acidity that comes from the clay soil there, this Contra Costa Rosé truly shows how expressive wines grown in sand can be. The aromas are sweet, rich, and enticing while it tastes just as lovely as the nose would suggest. This certainly has acidity and freshness, but it is much more delicately woven into the fabric of the wine. The aromatic complexity, juicy flavor, silky texture, and bright acidity all come together in a beautiful harmony. This wine will pair with food beautifully, but it does not require it. You are just as likely to open a bottle and enjoy it by itself, in all of it’s glory.
