2020 Forever Baby, Rosé, California

It's you and me, Baby...forever. The groovy followup to Wasted Love and Stars Like Ours, our new, refreshing Forever Baby is the ride-or-die Rosé that's absolutely dripping with deliciousness.

Before the 2020 harvest started, we challenged our winemaking team to make sure this Rosé topped all of our previous efforts, and if you know anything about Bertus and his crew, it's that they take challenges very seriously. 

It is our personal belief that the best grapes for making Provençal-style Rosé come from the Sierra Foothills. The summer's radiant heat assures a presence of bright fruit flavors and the soils, rich with decomposed granite, help create the crisp minerality and seashell-like salinity that we find delicious in Rosé. Plus, the Foothills never sold out and still have all the cool and weird varieties we all love.

For this year's Rosé, we put the spotlight on Grenache for its lovely citrus notes and strawberry flavors. This particular fruit came from the Saureel Vineyard, which sits about 1,500 feet above sea level. Next, we added Cinsaut from the homies at Snows Crossing Vineyard, which is a grape we love for its beautiful aromatics. Lastly, we completed the blend with our forever loves Mourvèdre and Counoise.

Let's take a sec to talk about Rosé philosophies. While some choose to simply bleed off juice as a by-product of their regular red wines (saignée), we feel that Rosé deserves to be deliberately made. So we select the best grape varieties, pick grapes at the ideal time, and then delicately whole-cluster-press our fruit to avoid extracting harsh textures and overwhelming color. It's a much harder and complicated method but assures us the purest expression of Rosé.

Now if you're looking for one word to sum Forever Baby up, it's sexy. A flirtatious perfume of rose petals, fresh strawberry, and lemon zest drips out of the glass. In your mouth, it's light, crisp, and refreshing, with sensuous flavors of strawberry candy, freshly peeled grapefruit, raspberry sorbet, and jasmine. And you better call up Sting, because this tantric finish lasts FOREVER.

After tasting it, we knew this Rosé was the one. A seductive, loyal, Rosé with vintage '70s swag like this doesn't come around very often. So we put a necklace on it and made it our Forever Baby.

I was a huge fan of Wasted Love - but Forever Baby is my new favorite Rosé! Just ordered another 1/2 case. Don't wait, get this one before its gone, they aren't kidding about it being the Best Rosé Ever.

Ooooh baby! So tasty and crisp. Drank it with an Israeli couscous and tomato salad with an arugula pesto. Perfect combo!!! I’m so glad I’ve got five more bottles in the cellar.

Just received my 1/2 case. I was a huge fan of Wasted Love so eager to try this one. It is definitely crisp and refreshing. Need to let it air a bit and have with food tonight.

This is the perfect wine to ease into warm weather. If you aren't familiar with rose' wine, this is a great wine to start with.

This is the perfect summer rose! I actually purchased a few bottles for my boss who just had a baby as a fun "baby" gift and they loved it! Cheers!

The best rose I have ever had. I tried this winery on vacation and fell in love. I live in Oklahoma and would rather pay to ship all of their wine than buy anything here. All of the blends are so unique and I haven’t tasted a bad one yet!

I’m a Rose wine drinker and have tried many of them. This has to be my fav. It is special. I bought two bottles and served them at a dinner with friends and everyone loved this wine. Ordering more now!
