2014 Passaggio Rose Colored Glasses Tempranillo Rose
"Passage Way" the Italian translation for Passaggio the label Cynthia Cosco has successfully created following in the footsteps of her families tradition of winemaking.
Having a passion for winemaking she walked away from a 15 year career to embark on a journey which can be both rewarding and challenging. Her love of the grape, the ever changing weather pattern affecting the grapes in the vineyard were mere challenges in the road for this female winemaker destined for greatness. She worked her way through the ranks from tastings to harvest to cellar to lab and finally a winemaker.She has successfully built her brand from those early days to include artisan wines covering white blends, rose's chardonnay, pinot grigio, sauvignon blancs, pinot noir, merlot and sangiovese just to name a few. The 2015 lineup will bring even more varietals. Keep a pulse on Cynthia because her popularity is growing among her fans and the winemaking community.
Right from the start the nose is filled with red raspberry, strawberry and melon followed by a hint of currants. Crisp and refreshing. Ok enough of this swirling lets taste this aromatic beauty!
The mouth explodes with layers of red fruit and finishes with a juicy kiss of watermelon. Very clean and a wonderful balance of fruit and acidity. So pleasing on the palate. A very special crazy good Rose` and one which is sadly sold out. Must buy more next time.
Stop by the tasting room located in the Historic Sonoma Square 25 East Napa Street Suite C Sonoma CA. The wines and staff will spoil you and you may even see the winemaker mingling with the guests.Sip and enjoy artisan boutique wines from Passaggio.
