Schramsberg J Schram Rosé 2011
|Region||California, North Coast|
This tightly balanced wine is laser-focused yet full-flavored in a way that's very enticing. Vivid acidity binds together extraordinary peach, ginger and baking spice flavors that start out crisp and then blossom on the palate and linger on the finish. Made from 69% Chardonnay and 31% Pinot Noir, it's delicious now but will be even better after 2024.

Medium salmon-pink in color, it's scented of melon, dried red berries and citrus pith with accents of crushed shell and mushroom. The palate is extraordinarily fresh and youthful, with bright berries character, finely beaded mousse and a long, fresh finish. 1,476 cases produced.
Extravagant aromas of strawberry, Asian pear, cinnamon brioche and caramelized hazelnut open to refined and elegantly layered flavors that offer an intriguing hint of age on the lingering finish. Drink now. 1,476 cases made.
