Post Flirtation Rosé 2021

88% Zinfandel, 12% Vermentino · California · 994 Cases

We only make this wine when the timing is right. The 2021 brings a parade of watermelon agua fresca and red clay on the nose. Lemon curd, acacia, and prickly pear on the palate cartwheel into a precise, dry finish. As usual, Post Flirtation Rosé never fails to delight with subtlety and substance.

Enjoy With

Brunch spreads, french fries, anything topped with caramelized shallot, and an order of lemon ricotta pancakes for the table. This wine is absolutely delightful alone but settles into its best self on a sumptuous summer table.

Drink When

You're getting in touch with the folks who fill up your cup (literally and metaphorically). Post Flirtation Rosé is the ideal companion for juicy conversations, refreshing connections, and chasing the sunny spots around the park.

Martha's Notes

What I love most about rosé is how versatile it is with food. If you’re not sure what to pair with, rosé can fit the bill. Typically I prefer using barrels for our rosé fermentations to soften the fruitiness a bit, but this year’s Zinfandel from the Sierra Foothills came off the press bursting with such a uniquely charming savory profile that we opted to keep the wine in stainless steel throughout elevage, blending in dry-farmed and deeply concentrated Vermentino for a final splash of brightness. With or without food, this is a classic Post Flirtation wine—exuberant and almost too easy to drink! Explore the interplay between fresh and savory flavors over the course of a glass (or bottle!), as the wine warms slightly and more of those savory notes come alive.
