Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this wine is soft, yet generous, with cherry and berry characteristics that are typical of the Los Carneros AVA. It is dry with no residual sugar, but there is a hint of sweetness on the palate that comes from the intense fruit characters and its moderate alcohol. The balance of fresh fruit, richness, and body is reflected in the color of the wine, which is an attractive brilliant mauve.
It was not put through ML fermentation and did not see oak barrels in order to preserve and augment the freshness of aromas and characters. Because it was left dry, it can accompany most any meal.
Although it was not designed to be a long lived wine, it is expected to age gracefully and be a perfect accompaniment to BBQ's, picnic lunches, Holiday dinners, and of course, hot summer nights.
McKenzie-Mueller Carneros CuvĂ©e RosĂ© is best served chilled. (55-58 degrees)
