2020 Dry Rose - Kelby James Russell

Available:  In Stock $18.00
Size: 750 ml
2020 was an exceptional vintage in the Finger Lakes. Warm and even temperatures throughout, with less than average, but well-spaced rainfall resulted in small berries and increased yields across the board. Large diurnal swings throughout September allowed for excellent sugar and flavor development without the loss of acidity. The ideal growing conditions earlier in the year resulted in earlier harvest dates than previous years. Mature Cabernet Franc; Herbal Flavors without overt greeness, the hallmark of the Nutt Road vineyard site’s long and cool growing conditions. The vintage provided smaller berries but increased yields in the vineyard resulting in concentrated flavors and ripeness. "Exuberant and expressive of the grape...Overall, this looks like another exceptional pink from Kelby Russell." 90 points Mark Squires, Wine Advocate Best Values of the Year, Wine and Spirits 91 points RS: 0.1% TA: 5.7 g/l pH: 3.35 ALC: 13%
