Prêt à Boire Rosé Napa Valley 2012
We are pleased to offer you Prêt à Boire Rosé 2012, the third vintage of rosé wine produced from our high-altitude Syrah and Grenache vineyards located in the East Rutherford hills of Napa Valley. This third vintage reaffirms our commitment to making a world class Rosé and proves beyond a doubt that, as Heidi said, "We make a delicious Rosé wine on purpose... not by accident during the wine making process!"
Prêt à Boire Rosé 2012 ("Pret Ah Bwar") was harvested on September 19, 2012 and is a blend of 33% Grenache and 67% Syrah. It is ready to drink now or can be enjoyed over the next few years. Prêt à Boire Rosé is dry, with vibrant aromas of watermelon, ripe strawberries, pomegranate, honeysuckle and rose petals -- and a hint of minerality! As exemplified by a sign we recently spotted at The Meat Bar in Toronto, even the most hard-core oenophile among us can proudly enjoy this rosé with just about any food pairing.
We produced 325 cases of this vintage, and we will ship the wine in its unique and distinctive acrylic box in the spring. If you want in, secure your allocation now!
Iconic Louisana artist George Rodrigue passed away on December 14, 2013, leaving behind a unique legacy including his famous loup-garou or "Blue Dog." George Rodrigue created an original "Pink Dog" for us, entitled "Bouquet of Roses," that embellishes this wine. There are 6 bottles of pink dogs in each unique acrylic case so that you can always keep a close watch on your prized possessions.
Accolades for the Prêt à Boire Rosé Napa Valley
TOP 100 WINES - RobbReport's Holiday Host's Guide
"Almost French. New from Napa's most Francophile vintners, Prêt à Boire, a Rosé that will go on the market in spring 2011. It's the latest offering from Amuse Bouche, a cult winery known for its French style winemaking, Gallic monikers and arresting labels such as this one by blue dog artist George Rodrigue."
"Heidi Peterson Barrett's mouthwatering, full-bodied Rosé - composed of 70 percent Syrah and 30 percent Grenache - tantalizes the nose with scents of rose petals and strawberry before a panoply of refreshing flavors, including plum and dry herbs, emerges. The perfect complement to the gazpacho."
