About

Adventurous young winemaker Jared Dixon is taking the New England wine region in some interesting directions. Working with his fruit naturally, exploring unsung sites, it's an exciting development for the region. Jared's Rosé is comprised of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gewürztraminer, fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak. It's bright, fresh and near on impossible to put down. Mike Bennie rated this 93 points, saying that once it opened up, "it was unstoppable with its compulsion to skol." which is about as good as an endorsement as you are likely to find for any wine made in the crisp Rosé style. Only 87 dozen were bottled and it's in hot demand.

What it Tastes Like

"Bright, light garnet hue. Shows some of sauvignon blancs greener characters amongst red cherry and watermelon, Turkish delight sweet fruitiness. Palate is really lively and fresh-feeling, cherry and pomegranate juice yet finishes with a pucker of cranberry juice. It took a good couple of hours to hit its stride, and some air, but geez, when it did, it was unstoppable with its compulsion to skol. Crisp, delicious rose stylings." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
