"Given my long love affair with Rosé, there was never any doubt what the first wine would be," said Kelby. "That it should also be sourced from 100% Cabernet Franc from the Nutt Road Vineyard, where my winemaking career started, only feels more appropriate."

Filled with intense strawberry, grapefruit, and floral aromas, this Rosé was bottled just after the start of the New Year to capture all these flavors and prepare it for a Spring release. Best enjoyed while listening to "Vivir Lo Nuestro" by La India and Marc Anthony

91 Points, The Wine Advocate “…In its youth, this feels surprisingly full-bodied, all things considered. Then, of course, we expect it to be dry with plenty of power—and it has its fair share. The structure is tightly wrapped around the mid-palate. This year, though, there is fine supporting fruit to counter the acidity. It has dried herbs with some black fruits—always dry, fresh and serious, with gravitas….” - Mark Squires, July 2020 Week 3, The Wine Advocate
