2013 Robert Biale Vineyards Rosato Rosé


While travelling to Napa late September this year, we had an early frost.  It’s called Indian Summer when you have a frost that is followed by more warm weather.  To further describe Indian summer it is s a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. The US National Weather Service defines this as weather conditions that are sunny and clear with above normal temperatures, occurring late-September to mid-November.

We had a four-day stretch of Indian summer that started recently on a Thursday and continued through that weekend.  It was great and gave us an opportunity to clean out the garage.  We will be building a lake home in the spring so we have to start throwing or giving items away that we no longer have need for.  On Sunday it was really hot, so after the chores were done it was time for a glass of wine.

Pale color depth with a nice salmon hue.

This Rose’ was very aromatic with notes of crisp strawberry.

Dry, light-bodied with balanced acidity.  Silky soft mid-palate flavors with a long finish.

abv: 13%

How much: $28.00

Region/appellation: Napa Valley and the Sierra foothills of El Dorado County.

The 2013 Robert Biale Vineyards Rosato Rose’ is probably one of the best Rose’ I have had in years.  I rated it four glasses.


Life is too short to drink crappy wine!
