Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This almost clear, pale salmon pour with a delicate nose is very much a Provence style rosé. It is dry and slightly textured with light, lively strawberry notes. Light-bodied and elegant with a respectable finish. This is a lovely, versatile wine that would be great for lunch, sipping, picnics. Tasted July 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine is a deceivingly Provence-style Rose that can almost be confused with wines from this region, however it is the ripe fruit notes that give this Californian Rose away to the trained palate. It is quite pleasant and elegant - a perfect wine for Summer patio sipping! Fresh berries, white cherries, white strawberries and a hint of lime rind on the finish makes Joel Gott a mouthwatering and easy on the palate wine. Good for the price.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From a wine lacking intensity of colour comes a bouquet with marvelous intensity, boasting exuberant full, ripe, and fruity notes of peach, tropical fruits, and melon. Dry and soft on the palate, hiding a body of 13.6% ABV behind a delicious medley of fruits. Retains good acidity for the ripeness. Finishes dry with potent replays of the peach and tropical fruit notes. A fine match for peach-glazed pork chops.
Joel Gott 2018 Rosé is a dry, 87% Grenache, 6% Cinsault, 4% Counoise, 2% Grenache Blanc, 1% Rousanne blend sourced from San Luis Obispo, Monterey and Santa Barbara Counties. The rosé was brought up in stainless-steel tank. Look for fresh cherry, ripe melon and juicy stone-fruit flavours with a smattering of spice on the palate. Balanced with good acidity and good one for the barbeque. - Community Wine Reviews
