Our favorite American rosé is here—just in time for summer cookouts and fireworks! Charles & Charles is a collaboration between award-winning winemaker Charles Smith and Charles Bieler (of Three Thieves Bandit fame).
A blend of Syrah (72%), Mourvedre (8%), Cabernet Sauvignon (8%), Grenache (6%), Cinsault (3%), Counoise (3%), the 2014 Charles & Charles has a vibrant pink color with salmon and fuchsia edges. Wild strawberry and watermelon aromas are interwoven with Herbs de Provence, citrus and mineral notes. These same flavors carry through to the palate where they intensify with a surprisingly broad and plush mouth feel that concludes with snappy acidity. (from the vintner)
