Trail Marker 2020 Rose of Carignan, Bartolomei Vineyard, Mendocino
It isn't very often that we see wines made from 100% Carignan let alone a rose but this Mendocino offering from Trail Marker is making us wonder why there aren't more. Very lacy and restrained aromatics, delicate and flowery with a backbone of citrus a hint of berries. That gentle nature comes across on the palate as well but there you get a slightly bigger, or rounder bump of fresh fruit. Wonderful lift on the finish makes this a perfect porch sipper as well as easily paired up pretty much any food you wish to throw at it.
