Prêt à Boire
2020 Prêt à Boire Napa Valley Rosé
We are delighted to offer you, loyal devotees of pink wine à la française, our 2020 Prêt à Boire Rosé. French for "Ready to Drink", the expression Prêt à Boire might apply either to the wine itself or to your state of mind when returning home after a long day...You are ready to relax, clear your head, and enjoy an excellent glass of rosé!
Made in the southern French style, the 2020 Prêt à Boire Rosé is a Grenache and Syrah blend. Pale salmon pink in color, it offers beautiful aromas of potpourri, raspberry tart and fresh cherries, with hints of baking spices and cracked black pepper. It remains the only rosé produced in the US that garners 90+ point ratings from all the top wine critics.
Some of you may not be aware that the world lost George Rodrigue on December 14, 2013. He was 69 years old. George, and his wife Wendy, have been dear friends of ours since 2005 when we initially commissioned George to paint a "blue dog" for our 2006 Amuse Bouche release. A native of Louisiana, George launched his painting career in the 1960s. He was not only a magnificent artist; George was a true community leader, philanthropist and advocate of arts education, inspiring a new generation of artists through the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts. Our hearts are heavy with George's absence. We are fortunate to be able to surround ourselves with so many vivid, vibrant reminders of his beautiful, whimsical outlook on life.
