    "Three Roses"  2014 Red Blend Gold SF Chronicle
    Soft and smooth with berry fruits, and hints of vanilla and spice.

    The Story of Three Roses:
    Grandmama, our matriarch, is one of the “Roses” we honored in the naming of our red blend inaugural wine, “Three Roses.” The other two “Roses” are two of her namesakes; a daughter, and a granddaughter.

    Mickey’s parents, Luke and Rose purchased 70 acres in El Dorado County in the early 1970’s and the family lovingly refers to it simply as, “The Ranch.” Many family gatherings and happy memories have been made, and continue to be made here. With Grandmama’s loving nature and Grandpa Luke’s teasing humor, they created a very happy place for their family to grow and gather. In 2010 the Borello Family planted a vineyard on a portion of the property and named it “Rosa-Lucca Estates” to honor the memory of these very much beloved parents.

    AROMA: Dark berry fruits, rose petal, spice, vanilla.
    PALATE: Ripe blackberry, black cherry, vanilla, subtle oak. Complexity abounds in this big beautiful blend of our Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah.
    ESTATE GROWN: ABV 14.5%
