Arkenstone Ambrose Rose 2016
Earthy, bright, bursting... Ambrosé reflects its California origins. Late-ripening Syrah kissed at the confluence of three Sonoma creeks, with a complement of complex Mourvèdre cooled by marine fogs rolling around Mount Diablo. A light touch in the cellar makes for rosé touched by light. Start with a gentle press, brief skin contact, & slow ferment. Stainless steel preserves natural acidity, while a bit of neutral French oak rounds out the mid-palate.
