Ernest Eugenia Central Coast "The Country Wife" Cinsault Rosé 2018
Ernest Vineyards is named after Todd Gottula's grandfather. Together with his wife Erin Brooks, the couple runs their winery with a very hands on approach. Their philosophy is much about the climate and terrior. Crafting wines with good acidity, low alcohol and minimal influence of oak to create the perfect balance.
In the sub-appellation of San Lucas, located 12 miles south of King City, lies San Lucas Vineyard. The climate is similar to the Rhone region of France. Blustery afternoon winds, known as the mistral in France are ever present in the Salinas Valley and San Lucas. This wine is made by Ernest Vineyards, and named after the owner's maternal grandmother. Eugenia would often serve cowboys an early campfire breakfast and transition to tea in the afternoon. Her remarkable contributions to the family and community inspired this wine, The Country Wife, a wine both humble and sophisticated.
