Vinum Cellars is a small California Winery known for producing wines of the highest quality. The grapes are selected from premium growing areas within California. The wines are made by hand to allow the varietal character to express itself.
This Rosé was made as part of the Red Dirt Red wine family, by taking some of the juice at the distemmer before the grapes were pumped into the red fermenter. However, a good portion of the wine was made by pressing the grapes directly in the press.
“Screw cap. Excellent quality rose. It is fragrant, full bodied, balanced, and long on the finish, tasting of cherry, plum, watermelon, herbs, and white pepper. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre. [2017-2018].”
Wine Enthusiast, August 2017
"This is a vibrant, pale yellow wine which glistens in the sunlight and is the quintessential summertime sipper. The first thought is refreshing after nosing this wine and discovering tropical fruits such as kiwi and casaba melon notes and a touch of linalool and blood orange notes. The palate is completely balanced in its acidity and mid palate allowing a variation of flavors to be revealed: citron lemon, key lime, Pipen apple, fig and Meyer lemon zest. It finishes with honeysuckle, mango, passion fruit and kumquat."
This is a wine we have wanted to make for about 15 years. The concept is simple, when you choose the right clones of Pinot Noir grown in the best spots and picked at optimal ripeness the flavors that jump out of the glass are easily summed upby the expression “Cherry Bomb”.
