Luscious, lively, fresh, and vibrant, the new Rosé of Pinot Noir from Donum Estate ($50) is simply exquisite. It is the perfect wine to welcome summer. The 2020 vintage celebrates the 20th anniversary of the winery, set in the picturesque rolling hills of the Carneros region of Sonoma. An artistic adventure awaits any visitor to the property, as Estate owners, Allan and Mei Warburg, have spent years putting together one of the most impressive collections of large format, open-air sculptures situated throughout the estate, bringing delicate grapes a bit of beauty and delight to enjoy. Happy grapes make delicious wine.
From one block of fruit from their Carneros estate specifically selected for the production of Rosé, and cared for with the attention to detail Donum gives each of their wines. Complex, structured, and thought-provoking, the wine is ideal for enjoying on its own, but rich and textured enough to pair beautifully with seasonal fare like grilled fish, summer salads, fresh pasta dishes, as well as something more gastronomic like butter-poached lobster or roasted pork tenderloin. Opening with aromas of wildflower and orange blossom, leading to flavors of red apple, golden peach, wild berries, and a touch of marzipan, finishing with a delightful note of salinity, requiring you to enjoy another sip. #Cheers
