Capitello Wines 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir Willamette Valley, Oregon $19
Our 2018 Rose’ of Pinot Noir is unique compared to the majority of Willamette Valley Rose wines. Most rose wines are produced in the saignee’ method, which produces elegant pretty wines, but most lack depth and structure as an excellent food wine. Ray Walsh’s winemaking style is to produce a purpose made Rose’, which offers more finesse, fruit and flavor. We harvest single vineyard Pinot Noir at dawn, de-stem , then soften on the skins for 12 hours. The result is a more structured & balanced wine with bolder flavors of strawberry, herbs & rose petal. This watermelon-hued wine showcases light tannins with excellent balanced acidity. The 2018 is a luscious rose’ and pairs very well with heartier fare as well as savory dishes year round.
