Always a wild child.

Meet the delicious, refreshing follow-up to Stars Like Ours and Forever Baby, our free-spirited Wild Child. One sip of this, and you'll never go back to boring Rosé.

If you've been with us a while, you know the lengths we will go to create a crisp, Provençal-style Rosé that tops all of our previous efforts. This year's effort is no exception. In fact, it blows away our previous bottling.

While a lot of wineries treat Rosé as a by-product of their regular red wines, AKA the "saignée" method, we believe that Rosé deserves a deliberate approach. So we select the best grape varieties, pick at the ideal ripeness, 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, untamed expression of Rosé.

The backbone of Wild Child is Grenache and Mourvèdre from the Saureel Vineyard in El Dorado County, which sits at 1,500 feet in elevation. Not only do the Sierra Foothills have all the groovy varieties we love for Rosé, but the growing conditions are ideal for our stylistic approach. Intensely hot summers help produce fruit with bright, mouth-watering flavor and the decomposed granite soils lend the incredible minerality that keeps it all in balance. Lastly, we added Cinsaut and Counoise to the party, because we love their gypsy souls too.

And let us reiterate: this is the BEST ROSÉ we have ever made. Starting with the delicate salmon color, and gorgeous aromas of wild strawberries, grapefruit zest, and rose petals, this wine will literally make you drool. And when we say literally, we mean literally. On your tongue, you'll pick up these bright flavors of strawberry, bing cherry, and fresh watermelon complemented by sexy jasmine and tea notes. The finish? It's fucking crisp and satisfying. Just like you asked for.

At Tank, we've long celebrated rebels, misfits, and those that just don't give a shit, and as such, we blessed this wine with the name Wild Child. But how do you capture all these wild, sexy, untamed flavors in a label? The same way we always do, by calling up our longtime collaborator Sita Kaylin, and telling her we need a Trans Am, some California sun, and somebody who just doesn't give a shit.

Delicious & sophisticated rose. Pairs nicely with poultry and fish. Very drinkable right from the bottle.

This wine tastes like drinking wine on a sunny day in Napa valley! It’s juicy and crisp with a very refreshing finish. Makes me miss the valley with every glass!
