2006 Syrah Rosé
Santa Ynez Valley

Five years ago it seemed as though no "serious wine person" would be caught dead drinking pink wine. Embarrassing ghosts of white zinfandels past haunted many a wine sensibility. However, in just a few short years, dry roses have become perfectly respectable, even sought after by wine aficionados everywhere. And why not? Europeans have been quaffing rosy wines at lunchtime for eons. Roses are low in alcohol, light on the palate, you serve them chilled and, like sparkling wine, they go with just about anything. The succulent watermelon hue of 2006 Buttonwood Syrah Rose is the result of 4 hours of skin contact while whole cluster pressing after harvest. Cold fermentation of six weeks and four months of stainless steel aging preserve the just-picked juicy flavors that suggest pineapple and banana along with strawberry that follows through from the aroma.

Serve this rose well chilled with a salad of cheese stuffed tortellini, red bells, Bermuda onion, kalamata olives, and freshly chopped basil.
