Tasting notes: Watermelon agua fresca and red clay on the nose. Lemon curd, acacia, and prickly pear on the palate, and a precise dry finish. Absolutely refreshing alone but also a great food rosé.

Words from Martha:

What I love most about rosé is how versatile it is with food. If you’re not sure what to pair with, rosé can usually fit the bill. Typically I prefer using barrels for our rosé fermentations to soften the fruitiness a bit, but this year’s Zinfandel from the Sierra Foothills came off the press bursting with such a uniquely charming savory profile that we opted to keep the wine in stainless steel throughout élevage, blending in a splash of dry-farmed and deeply concentrated aged Vermentino to ground and frame the cuvée (like we added a bit of lux gold crown molding to your favorite modern interior). With or without food, this is a classic Post Flirtation wine—exuberant and almost too easy to drink! Explore the interplay between fresh and savory flavors over the course of a glass (or bottle!), as the wine warms slightly and more of those savory notes come alive
