You should absolutely drink Rosé year-round, or at least Matt Courtney’s. And you should also consider buying this by the case while we have some to spare. Dry, with mineral notes and subtle briary, thistle fruit, this 2021 is pure joy in a glass. It is refreshing and drinks well on its own or with an array of food flavors, thanks to Matt’s winemaking skills and the grower vineyards he works with- Lancel Creek, Silver Eagle, Frei, and now Volpert Vineyard. All coastal with a touch of warmth to keep the fruit from being too austere, this is a must-try Rosé. If you didn’t know, Matt honed his winemaking skills after finishing his studies at UC Davis and replacing his friend at Marcassin to become Helen Turley’s assistant winemaker for more than eight years. Since then, he has been putting his own magic touch on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at Ferren and Arista Winery.
