Husband and wife team, Ryan and Megan Glaab, could have taken the easy road. We all know that in California, grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are in constant demand. It would have been "easy" for them to focus their winemaking on these varietals. Instead they chose to go down a different path.
Ryme Cellars is well-known for their work with Italian grape varietals. They source grapes from organic and sustainable vineyards in Northern California. In the winery, they work only with natural yeast, never using temperature control, no fining or filtering, and never any trickery, no enzymes or tweaking of any kind.
The 2020 Aglianico Rosé is one of the very best pink wines I’ve featured all year. The fruit comes from the Heringer Vineyard in Clarksburg, which is noted for rich alluvial soils, moderate daytime temperature, and cooling winds from the nearby Delta. The Aglianico produced from this vineyard tends to be on the elegant side, perfect for a Rosé!
The grapes are picked with high natural acidity, whole cluster pressed which lends itself to a more delicately colored rosé, and fermented in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak.
The 2020 Rosé jumps from the glass with notes of strawberry, citrus and mineral. It has a perfect combination of weight on the palate, alongside great acidity and a long finish.
Tasting this Rosé is just another reason why I think this is one of California’s most underrated wineries. Don’t miss it!
