2018 O1V Merlot Rose
100% Merlot Rosé, October One Vineyard , Bluemont, Virginia
Very interesting rosé. A bolder style, with a bit of toast or caramel to the nose. More of a red wine drinker’s rosé. Strawberry, vanilla, caramel, fresh cherry. Medium-bodied with a touch of tannin on the back end.
16 hour cold soak, then to press. Four week long cold fermentation, then aged in neutral oak
