Vaughn Duffy Rosé of Carignane
By Vaughn Duffy
Origin: Mendocino County, California, U.S.A.
Vineyard: The wine is sourced from the Bartolomei Brothers vineyard just outside of Ukiah in Mendocino County. The vineyard is 80-years-old and the Carignane vines are head trained and nestled up against the bench of the eastern Ukiah Valley.
Tasting Notes: The wine jumps out of the glass with aromas of strawberries and nectarine. The wine’s acidity pops on the entry and the texture gathers weight as it lingers on the finish. Flavors of honey crisp apple, fresh basil and watermelon stand out amidst this vibrant and pretty wine.
