The Biltmore Reserve label signifies that this exceptional wine was handcrafted from grapes grown in our estate vineyard or by our local partners-in this case, we selected outstanding fruit from mature Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vines in both Biltmore's estate vineyard as well as grapes grown at a lower elevation than ours. This lovely 2019 Rosé features a light rosy pink hue and aromas of banana, strawberry, and papaya.
The nose is echoed on the off-dry palate with a delicate sweetness, hints of spice and white pepper, plus roundness and good mouthfeel. Approachable and easy to drink, the style is reminiscent of classic old-world rosés. Enjoy it year-round with charcuterie, mustard-glazed salmon, pesto pizza, smoked gouda cheese, and serve it with holiday favorites like glazed ham. Perfect for brunch, porch sipping, and your next Taco Tuesday featuring fish tacos drizzled with lime juice.
