2017 Reeve, Rosé of Pinot Noir, Vecino Vineyard, Potter Valley.
From a cool climate vineyard site, the Reeve Rosé of Pinot Noir is bursting with energy, it’s a dry cooly crisp pink to look for, in league with some of California’s most sought after Rosés! With Katy Wilson of LaRue and Ross Cobb of Cobb Wines consulting here for Noah Dorrance, Reeve is one of the hottest new labels in California, with a great set of individual wines from top terroirs, from Pinot Noir to Cabernet and Riesling to Sangiovese. I got to try a sampling of Noah’s current lineup and was left impressed, really impressed, with the Reeve Riesling and this Rosé being especially appealing and vivid. The 2017 Reeve Rosé of Pinot Noir from the biodynamic Vecino Vineyard in Potter Valley, one of my favorite dry pinks of the year so far, is full of zippy acid, mineral tones and brisk layers of tangy fresh delicate fruits with racy citrus, sour cherry, watermelon, distilled strawberry and rosewater along with a touch of herb and wet stones. This wine is wonderfully bright and light bodied, but with superb persistence and has brilliant high toned profile and with pure Pinot class in the glass. This will thrill Sancerre Rosé fans and all those that want lip-smacking dry intensity, like me, the quality here is obvious and Summer is calling, don’t miss this one and be sure to start following Reeve!
