Review: 2018 Bread & Butter Rose
A rose of unknown varietal origin, but hailing from Napa. Quite strawberry-heavy up front, the wine quickly takes a right turn into thick floral notes, a veritable thicket of lilac and honeysuckle. From there, the wine develops a distinct and surprising rosemary character, a pungent herbaceous quality that evokes a light vermouth. It’s crazy out of place in a rose called “Bread and Butter,” but it also gives the wine a surprisingly enchanting twist.
