Sexy Mermaid Rosé or Rabble Tooth & Nail Rosé Wine is going to be super popular as the label is nothing but sexy, you want the label framed in your study or a tattoo sleeve depending on your age. Either way you will enjoy this rosé as it is big, round and fruit driven. Not so much that it screams California, if you blind taste this rosé you may say it is from France. Made from Estrella-clone Syrah from the Mossfire Ranch, a scenic 320 acre property on the eastern side of Paso Robles, CA. Paso Robles is known for superior fruit, and amazing scenery. This is going to be an amazing summer, wine- stock up!
Originally this wine was created in 2008 to celebrate the wineries 10th anniversary. The exotic compexity and food friendliness of a white Rone-style bland makes this a “red drinkers white” a complex alternative to the more one dimensional white varietal wines like Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc.
Coquille, is pronounced “ko-keel” it is French for shellfish or scallop.
Winemaker’s tasting notes, exotic nose of spicy pears and white peaches, almond paste/marzipan, a touch of honeysuckle perfume. In the mouth it is chrisply dry yet creamy and round and full-bodied, with nice almond paste on crisp-yet-juicy pear fruit.
