2015LiquidFarmRose2015 Liquid Farm, Rose, Vogelzang Vineyard, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA.
The Liquid Farm Rose is modeled after the Bandol Rose wines of Provence, mostly Mourvedre in make up and very well structured, this is a serious pink wine, know to it’s fans as “Liquid Crack” or “Pink Crack” for it’s hedonistic addictive qualities! The 2015 is ripe and pure with good framing and brisk acidity showing this wine at it’s best, it is like Bedrock’s Ode to Lulu Rose from the south with great detail and pleasure, and while there are some great Rose choices these days, the Liquid Farm is one of the most sought after and joins California’s elite group of pinks along with the mentioned Bedrock, Arnot-Roberts, and Matthiasson to name just a few. The 2015 Rose by Liquid Farm is bright and vigorous with rosewater, sour cherry, raspberry and nervy citrus along with watermelon, liquid mineral, chalky river stones, anise and spicy pepper and sticky lavender, this tartly fresh pink is very invigorating and length with subtle fruitiness and cool crisp finesse. Drink this Liquid Farm Rose of Mourvedre now through Thanksgiving if you can possibly hold on to any that long, one of the best vintages of this wine to date, it will sell out fast, also be sure to search out the Chardonnay offerings too, especially the Golden Slope.
