Wine Pick #1:
Farmstrong Field Rosé 2020
A new project from winemaker Faith Armstrong Foster of Onward, Farmstrong provides an artisanal take on California table wine. Sourced entirely from sustainable, old-vine, dry-farmed vineyards, Faith is working with heritage California grape varieties to create balanced wines that evoke a true sense of old-school California terroir.
Loaded with vibrant lively fruits, it is summer in a glass: ripe strawberries, honey tangerine, camellia blossom on the nose. The fruit from both the Carignane and Zinfandel is balanced and beaming with bright flavors while retaining the lovely natural acidity, red fruits, and floral notes. This wine is inviting, happy, easy-going, and relaxing…like a walk in the park on a sunny day.
