Plump and jovial! An ode to versatility with a light rosy pink color, this wine is alluring, playful, aromatic, and quite gulpable. Raspberries, strawberries, watermelon, cherries, spice and minerals lead to a persistent finish with great character and a wonderful zing. Pair this beautifully textured wine with almost anything from tomatoes and mozzarella to hanger steak with chimichurri sauce or charcuterie.
Like Channing's Cab Franc Rosato, Rosato di Merlot is made from hand harvested fruit that was whole cluster-pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. All of the Rosati are dry, balanced and delicious and the color comes only from the 3-4 hours in the press. This is red fruit selected specially for pink wine production that is processed like we were making white wine. Each wine offers a different appearance, aroma, flavor and textural experience.
