Las Jaras Old Vine Rosé 2020Regular price $29.00
A perennial style for the winemakers, this rosé often evolves, cépage-wise, from vintage to vintage in an effort to maintain it's signature, balanced essence. The 2020 saw a larger proportion of Zinfandel (nearly 70%) in the blend. Rampant red fruits and rose hips up front, plus a savory and satisfyingly bright finish - a neon-hued sunshine-y stunner.
Las Jaras is a labor of friendship between a long-time California winemaker Joel Burt and comedian Eric Wareheim. “Sweet Berry Wine”, the first wine they ever made, was born out of a desire to share wine with Eric’s comedy fans; it features John C. Reilly, one of Eric’s comedic counterparts, on the label, and has been part of the range ever since. Joel and Eric indeed work on the “cleaner side of natural”, as they put it, with a very simple philosophy in the cellar: pick it when it’s just right, use different kinds of vessels (there’s some concrete oak experiment going on), not much oak, and then “don’t fuck with it”. Some of the wines (like the new Waves cans) are lightly filtered and received a small dose of sulfur, but that’s about it! Above all, Joel and Eric's goal is to make delicious wine that has tons of energy and balance - vibrant and well-paired with food - but easy for anyone to enjoy. “These are the best moments in your life,” Eric confirms: “being with your friends or your lover, drinking a bottle of wine, laughing, and talking. Sometimes you’re talking about the wine, sometimes about life, but wine is always a part of it.”
