2021 Bartolomei Vineyard rosé of Carignan
Compared with 2020, the 2021 harvest was a breeze.
That said, the effects of California's drought were felt most dramatically in the low yields of Carignan at the Bartolomei Brothers vineyard.
This historical California vineyard has been in the Bartolemei family since the 1800's and the Carignan was planted in the early 1930's & late 1940's (between WWII). These dry farmed, head-trained vines look more like crooked trees shooting up from red rock soil -- a truly stunning place to grow the Southern Rhone varietal.
The resulting rosé showcases a beautiful, crisp acidity and an elegant palate that pleads for brunches, BBQs and beach days.
Enjoy a bottle (or case!) today.
