Central Coast

2016

Vasco Urbano Wine Company was created to showcase the exceptional Rhone style wines that are being grown and produced here in the Livermore Valley. We believe that the Livermore Valley’s unique terroir is perfectly suited for the Rhone varieties Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah. In addition, we source fruit from other prime growing regions throughout the Central Coast in the spirit of the traveling artist Vasco Urbano Louriero. Together these wines represent our efforts to produce World Class Rhone style wines here in the Livermore Valley.

Tasting Notes

Beautifully-hued, this salmon pink rosé is enticing from first glance. Aromas of tart strawberry, fresh chopped herbs and hint of white pepper elevate this wine while still carrying its inherent "drink-me-by-the-pool" appeal we all love. Tart acidity and a spiced-cherry compote front palate complements the medium weight of this blush wine gracing a rich, medium long finish. Enjoy not and catch this wine in its fun, flavorful nature in its youth.
