Our goal is always to balance fruit, savory and acid and so we want to pick on the early edge of ripeness, during the cool nighttime hours, and go direct to press ideally after a fairly long hang time which we got. Harvest extended in to November which is quite late for us! While in 2013 we had an unusually tiny grenache crop and quite a powerful syrah component which resulted in a dark and fuller bodied rosé, 2014 is back to the our more traditional Sabine style. It’s driven by more delicate grenache, cinsault and rolle aromas and flavors with the syrah bringing body and cabernet sauvignon adding spice. The wine is quite aromatic and jumps out of your glass with the classic Provence tug of war between wild red fruit berries as if you just picked them along a path to the beach, floral notes of lavender and rose petal and underlying savory herbs de Provence.
