2014 Onward Hawkeye Ranch Redwood Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., 280 cases, $20. Produced from a designated press lot (5 hours in the press before pressing), cold settled, fermented cool and long in stainless steel, underwent partial (70%) malolactic fermentation in neutral oak barrels with lees stirring. A small amount of saignée was added in to give additional Pinot Noir character. · Light apricot color in the glass. Lovely aromas and flavors of strawberry, cherry, blood orange, spice and savory herbs. This wine is eager to please and way too good for $20. Score: 89. Reviewed April 20, 2015
