2022 BACA Ring Around the Rosé
"Made from Zinfandel grapes, this has consistently been one of the best canned wines that you will find each year. This edition is neatly textured once on the mouth with layers of red raspberry, cantaloupe and Yakima cherry. Delicious, with bright underlying acidity this is best enjoyed now and over the next few years."
BACA Ring Around the Rosé
To craft our contemporary take on Rosé we started with organically farmed Zinfandel. The fruit was picked at a low 22 brix and gently whole-cluster pressed, yielding perfectly pink juice. Small-batch fermentations took place in neutral oak barrels until dry, resulting in a bright, energized style. In an unabashedly hipster move we chose to bottle in cans for the revival of this retro wine!
|Varietal Composition||100% Zinfandel|

|Vineyard||California - 3 Pack of 250mL Cans|
|Vintage Notes||Ample winter rain, followed by temperate and dry conditions through March gave us a good start to the vintage. The spring and summer months were consistent and warm, resulting in small but healthy canopies and balanced vines. Labor Day came with a curveball from Mother Nature in the form of a prolonged heat wave that accelerated harvest at many of our vineyard sites, followed immediately by much cooler weather and a bit of rain. This refreshing slow-down allowed the remaining grapes to hang a bit longer, yielding beautifully balanced fruit and polished tannin. Overall, the 2022 vintage is fresh with pure, concentrated flavors.|
