Rocky California dark rosé fit for royalty.
Indulge your inner monarch, because you deserve nice things. Forlorn Hope’s Queen of the Sierra Rosé drinks like a Tavel, or some such regal rosé. Queen of the Sierra is made from big grapes, like Zinfandel, Grenache Noir, and Tempranillo from the West Coast’s rising star Sierra Foothills region. The fruit was hand picked, whole cluster pressed, and fermented spontaneously in stainless steel prior to spending some time in neutral oak.
- Forlorn Hope is all about the outsiders, the lost causes, and the little guy; their wines are rare creatures from the limestone slopes of the Rorick Heritage Vineyard.
- Matthew Rorick is the vigneron who has been crafting Forlorn Hope’s wines since 2005, and tends to 75 acres of organically-farmed grapevines at Rorick Heritage Vineyard.
- Matthew was inspired by his Grandfather - his favorite dining companion - to get into wine.
- Kitchen sink salads made from farmer’s market hauls.
- Hanger steak, fajitas, or charred eggplant.
