PRESQU'ILE Pinot Noir Rosé 2015
(Santa Maria Valley, CA) $20
So far this year, after tasting hundreds of rosés from around the world, I think this 2015 Presqu’ile is the best rosé in California. It’s refrigerated sunlight. Salty sea spray. Asian spices. Strawberry stardust. Flashing minerality. While most good rosés are delicious, the Presqu’ile is something wholly more: delicious, sophisticated, and capable of exciting your mind as much as your palate.
And all for $20. (The winery’s name, Presqu’ile, is southern Louisiana vernacular for “near the island”).
