2018 SATURN RETURN is a bright and vibrant rosé that is very refreshing and exhibits a stony, mineral finish. It exhibits notes of nectarine, passionfruit, rose petal and grapefruit. For my third vintage, we’ve created a blend of Old-Vine Zinfandel from Del Barba Ranch, Petite Sirah from Stags Leap Ranch, Cabernet Franc from St. Helena, and Estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Calistoga. These diverse yet complimentary organic vineyards work in harmony to create freshness, fruit intensity + supple texture.
Vinous Tasting Notes
The 2018 Saturn Return is rich, racy and full of flavor. Far from an easy going quaffer, the 2018 delivers serious intensity from start to finish. This Zinfandel/Petite Sirah-based rosé is very nicely done. -Antonio Galloni
