2014 Isa Grenache Rose Sonoma Coast Campesino Cellars
Campesino Cellars the creation of Macario and Griselda Montoya produces premium boutique wines which reflect the earth and the vineyard. Lucky for us wine lovers they both were introduced to wine at an early age and caught the bug to make wine.They are quick to give credit to those who have helped them along the way especially the "campesino's", the fieldworkers who like many coming to this country, have dreams of a better life and work many long hours to prove themselves. They are as much a part of each bottle of wine as the winemaker and his family.
Named after their oldest daughter Isa, tonight's wine is a beautiful expression of rose` wine. The red fruit from this Grenache Rose`gently exits the glass pleasing your sense of smell with raspberry, strawberry and cherry clusters with an allspice kick at then end. While you pick up very quickly this is a dry wine there is this crisp refreshing sensation with each sniff.
The mouth is spectacular with the red berry clusters and dash of minerality throughout the taste. Nice level of acidity makes this wine both food friendly and a wonderful stand alone wine. I found with each sip my mouth begged for more. Thankfully I have 2 more of these in my cellar and folks this wine is an absolute steal at $16. Love this wine.
