2012 Grand Vin Rose

"The 2012 Grand Vin Rosé is a rosé bled off from 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot and, amazingly, aged 18 months in neutral French oak.  Most consumers have probably never encountered this type of rosé.  It possesses serious flavor intensity, light tannins, good acidity and a savory complexity as well as mouthfeel.  It is a rosé that could be called a light red wine... a singular style of rosé that should drink well for several years."
