Pret a Boire Rose 2011
100% Napa Valley
22 months100% new French oak barrels
September 1, 2009 and December 1, 2009
The impressive 2007 exhibits an opaque purple color as well as abundant aromas of sweet red and black currants, kirsch, spice box, licorice, and toasty new oak. Full-bodied, big, structured, and layered, it will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring. Winemaker Christopher Carpenter has again turned out a wine that should evolve for 25 years. Impressive! One of the titans of Jess Jackson’s empire, this cross-regional blend (from vineyards on Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain, Diamond Mountain, and the Oakville Corridor) spent 21 months in 100% new French oak.
