2018 Ballard Canyon PMV Grenache Rosé

Pmv Grenache Rose

91 Points

2018 brought a sudden change to our weather pattern at a most unusual but very beneficial time last August. After a hot July the weather turned moderate to cool and has stayed that way since. I do not know what happened but suddenly our mild climate became mild again, creating a beautiful more normal harvest on our vineyards. I do not think any wine benefited more from this than the Rose.

Harvested under pristine conditions in early October, the wine fermented long, slow and cool in tank well into November where it stayed until bottling in February. With a nice salmon, pink hue the wine is lighter in color than previous vintages but packed with the same flavor intensity. The wine expresses the red berry fruits and spice this rosé has become known for, with vibrant acidity and a long fruit filled finish. This is a great vintage of the PMV Grenache Rosé, possibly the finest ever produced!

    Year’s Best US Rosés” 

    From start to fin­ish this is pure, for­ward grenache, with a salty top note adorn­ing red plum fla­vors that are both sweet and tart. It’s fresh and min­er­al, with a fine-grained finish.

    The 2018 Grenache Rosé Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard is anoth­er stel­lar wine in this range. Creamy and invit­ing, the Rosé has an extra bit of tex­ture in this vin­tage that is quite appeal­ing. A dol­lop of Syrah adds body and rich­ness to play off the bright flo­ral and red berry fruit. Drink­ing win­dow: 2019 — 2023.

    This is a rosé with depth. On the nose you can enjoy notes of straw­ber­ries among flo­ral hawthorn, and jas­mine. There is also some under­ly­ing orange blos­som and ripe mel­on, as well a bit of mint. The palate is rich, and bal­anced by excel­lent acid­i­ty. This bot­tle is absolute­ly worth the $20 and can hang on its own or with some grilled fish or poultry.
