Other trends include one Russian River winery release of three single-vineyard, site-specific rosés of pinot noir; as far as we know, an industry first. That would be (Kathleen) Inman’s “Endless Crush” series set for release any day. This entry into what I would consider the luxury end of the rosé market is both proof of what this market may bear, as well as evidence that rosé is serious business, not just all pink stuffing for your pajama-party pillow fight. Inman’s range of pink pinot hopes to transcend the expectations of its category, taking into account fully the acid, structure and purity of each site’s fruit, and to further instill the notion of rosé as the “third category” of wine to be enjoyed year round, for its own merits.
