Beverage of the Week (BOW)
Day Owl Rosé California NV
Made with a blend of Barbera, Grenache, and Syrah sourced from select vineyards in Madera County and the Central Coast. The Barbera really shines through delivering bright strawberry notes with vibrant acidity. This Rosé is available in bottle and in cans – the cans seem to be the primary focus. The canned wine market in the US is in a rapid rise as cans allow greater flexibility for summer activities as they chill quickly and are far safer pool-side than bottles. It took the American consumer some time to properly embrace screw-top closures for wine but luckily premium canned wine is quickly gaining acceptance. Canned wines are here to stay!
Day Owl Rosé is made by O'Neill Vintners & Distillers. Founded in 2004 by Jeff O'Neill this family-owned and operated winery has grown to become the seventh largest winery in California with a reputation for producing high quality wines. O'Neill is known both for their winemaking services to the industry and their growing portfolio of premium wines.
Brilliant, medium salmon color. The nose is moderately intense offering scents of white peach and kumquat with supporting notes of boysenberry and spring flowers. The palate confirms the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of red grapefruit and raspberry. The finish is crisp with subtle notes of plum skins and sandalwood. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced with a vibrant texture and bright acidity.
