“The new Yui Rosé once again offers clear evidence that this style of wine can be as serious as any Napa Cabernet. The bouquet is crisp and refreshing, offering plenty of bright raspberry, and hints of spring flowers. The palate flexes a bit of muscle, but displays classic notes of ripe red raspberry, crisp pomegranate, and refreshing brightness that culminate in a memorable finish. This is a perfect Spring and Summer sipper that will thrill over the next year + age for at least two more years so stock up and Enjoy!” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
yui –The Japanese word which corresponds to the unity between all things, representing the poetic balance between Kenzo Estate and its pristine natural milieu. 

Special blocks of Merlot and Cabernet Franc are selected from the estate and dedicated to the production of this one wine. The result is a soaring achievement; with its radiant pink hue, vibrant perfume of peaches and apricots, and a refreshing acidity.
