2015 Ousterhout Woods Vineyard Russian River Valley Rosé of Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., 235 cases, $29. Clone 777 planted in a tiny vineyard in the southern part of the Russian River Valley owned by the Wood family. · Delicate tangerine color in the glass. Engaging aromas of strawberry, raspberry and blood orange that I found irresistible. A charge of delicious strawberry, yellow peach, tangerine, tutti fruiti, and dried herb flavors impress and linger on an expansive finish replete with crisp acidity. Plenty to discover in this unusually gifted and beautifully balanced rosé. Score: 93. Reviewed May 6, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »
