2008 B Vineyards & Habitat Rosé of Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

13.5% alc., 124 cases, $19. Sourced from estate-grown organic clone 777 grapes. Whole cluster press, cold fermentation. Also crafted by winemaker Hugh Chapelle. · Similar nose as the Lynmar but more restrained with an undertone of summer herbs. White peach, orange and strawberry flavors with a hint of tutti-fruity and spice. The mouth feel is unusually rich for a rosé, with a velvety texture and refreshing acidity on the finish. A French-styled, serious wine with plenty of intensity to satisfy. Reviewed July 9, 2009
