Weekly Wine Deal: 2016 Baileyana Rosé
Regular Retail: $19.99
Deal Price: $11.99 a bottle or an additional 10% off a case
Jack and Catherine Niven were the first wine pioneers to see the potential of San Luis Opispo as a viable viticultural region. Matt and Finn were the first pioneers to pitch a Rose on a day in November in the middle of a snow storm. The former, consulted with wine programs at UC Davis and Fresno State while they developed their Paragon vineyard in 1973, which is now the oldest standing vineyard in the region. That later, thought the deal was so good for a Rose we are big fans of that you wouldn’t even notice it was snowing outside. Right? Catherine wanted to create her own vineyard and produce her own wines from vineyards outside their home. She did not want to follow the conventions of California winemaking and sought her inspiration from European style winemaking. Sourcing her Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit from the Paragon vineyard, Catherine created wines with balance and elegance. She named her winery Baileyana after the location where she met Jack for the first time.
The 2016 Baileyana Rosé is a season ending(lol) special with a very limited number of bottles available. It is a rosé of Pinot Noir that is harvested at two points in the season, first to capture freshness and vibrancy, then second to develop ripeness and depth of fruit character. In the glass the wine is an off-pink salmon color. That vibrancy comes out with the first whiff featuring crisp citrus notes leading into a cascade of watermelon, raspberry, strawberry fruits and rose petal. On the palate, the wine has good levity and is delicate with a nice seamless texture and smooth finish. This wine will be the perfect wine to cool down with after you’ve been toasting yourself by the fire and would be a great compliment to a Nicoise salad, Florida Stone Crab claws or a Parmesan/Citrus Pasta. Season's Greetings!
