For wine lovers, being in-the-know can sometimes result in finding a wine that so over-performs that you’ll feel like you stole something when you try it. POP 300’s Rosé hands you all of that on a silver platter, and here’s why… Many wine lovers would argue that To Kalon in Oakville is the most celebrated vineyard in California. A little known secret is that there’s a tiny block of Pinot Noir in the center of this magical vineyard, and It’s called Wilsey-To Kalon. There, location combined with being connected, yields some incredible fruit, and POP 300 Rosé has my vote for being in the Lucky Land Club.
Oakville produces some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the world, but very few people would consider that Pinot Noir even exists in the region. This genuinely unique Rosé of Pinot Noir is made by Luke Russ, whose day job is the Commercial Director at O’Shaughnessy Winery.
Luke made the 2019 vintage in a brightly focused style, with vivid red cherry, mineral-infused raspberry, pink grapefruit, and spring flowers. This beauty is one of the most scarce Rosés that we watch for each year, and there’s never enough to match demand.
