22% Cabernet Franc
The fruit for the 2019 Rosé was picked early to retain a fresh acidity. Acid is crucial for a balanced rose. We want it to be light, fresh, and easy for you all to enjoy! Sangiovese is always the base for the 50 West Rosé, and it took the front seat this year at 56% of the blend. The berries and clusters are huge and with 2019 being such a great vintage, it allowed the fruit to gain a bit more ripeness before harvest. This translates in the wine to notes of raspberry, strawberry, white grapefruit, and summertime watermelon. Pair with a spring salad with arugula, goat cheese, and fresh strawberries.
