I was about to buy... until I noticed it was for (5) bottles.
Then my brain kicked in and stopped my hand from buying it due to my per-bottle budget restraint on wine

So, this wine was supposed to make it to the Austin Woot tasting, but it showed up a little late. Fortunately, it still showed up prior to the Woot offer, so I got to taste it tonight.

I've got a very narrow window for what I like in Rosé, and this Tramonto hits all my buttons. It is a beautiful coral color in the glass. Probably one of the nicest looking Rosés I've seen in a while.

It's bone dry, with nice/medium acid. I get lots of Strawberry on this one. The description mentions Cucumber, which I've never associated with wine, but I can see it. It's just got a nice crisp, freshness to it.

At $12/bottle, it's a very good deal. 9/10 from me. Come summertime in Texas, I probably will be kicking myself for not buying more.

* in for one for now. maybe i'll up it later today, but i'm still smarting from my beserker day purchases *

yes...I bet I've had a few dozen bottles over the past few months of this pink wine by Brack Mountain Wine Co. Those who know me know I'm a Rose fanatic.

ahh Mill as first sucker and Redwinefan piping in with a great tasting note and review, melts my heart! Superb.

this Rose is truly fantastic, excited to have a few cases left of the 2011 for woot.

Tramonto Rose of Pinot Noir is incredibly small production, and our 2012 is already sold-out - hasn't even been bottled yet!

Some tech notes: Fermentation- The Pinot Noir was destemmed and moved into fermentation tanks, then a small percentage of juice was bled off. Most of the bleed off juice was transferred for fermentation into a stainless steel tank, with a portion in placed in neutral oak barrels. The wine was bottled as soon as it settled post fermentation to preserve its vibrant freshness.

217 cases produced, low alc. @ 12.7%

Redwinefan: glad you got the bottles - albeit late - that's how 3 tier distribution rolls...sigh.

This is some good stuff Ali I've passed some around so hopefully some more people will chime in.

How much life do you think is left in the 2011? Tastes very spry to me still.

Glad you like it, I know you dig really good dry rose too. This is tasting very fresh all right, it was bottled a little later than our 2011 Origine Rose of Pinot Noir, winemaker Dan will login at some point to give his thoughts.

This wine actually stands up to spicy foods...great with TexMex and Thai foods.

Hi all, Redwinefan hooked us up with a bottle just before the weekend. Popped it open Friday night and drank with Friday and Saturday dinners.

Just upon opening and pouring, I got the slightest bit of effervescence on tasting. Not a bad thing and pretty common in whites and roses; this went away with some decanting.

On the nose, lots of floral elements.

On the palate, fruit forward watermelon and strawberry with a little bit of a spicy finish. It's got a nice, mouth watering acidity to it.

Not surprised to see the stainless/neutral oak fermentation and aging. This is nice dry rose, with a fresh/crisp finish (I didn't pick up any oak at all).

This should be a nice one for all those summer picnics around the bend.

Oh darn it, you guys! It hasn't even been up for an hour and your comments have convinced me to go in for two. And, hopefully, I'll love it so much that I'll hate myself for not going for three. Love them dry roses!

Hey Ali,
Nice to see you back around these parts! Sounds like my kind of rose - light, dry, and strawberry-filled. Is this saignee, vin gris, intended as rose in the vineyard, or some other rose-making method?

Not to be picky, but are the bottles really 50 ml? Wouldn't that even be small for an airplane? Maybe it should say 500 ml? Or even 750?

Is there a 7 or a 0(zero) missing? 750ml or 500?

I too am wondering about this... $59.99 for 250ml of Rose - no matter how good, is a bit OUT of my price range...

I too would like to know what the lifespan of this vintage is? When the winemaker comes on, please have him enlighten us.

Wow, love Rose and even though its snowing in NJ now I know summer will return and I will need some good rose for those hot days where a Big Red is just too much.
After reading the tasting notes and the 2012 sell out I will go in for 3 right after this post. That should put a dent in my summer needs.

Hi Good Morning, caught a solid 7 hours of shut-eye last night that I sooo needed. Yes, it's Saignee style- we bleed off Pinot Noir - I believe this particular vintage came from 4 different RRV vineyards - 2 Pommard clones, one Dijon and a Martini.

To answer a bit more on how long it should last - well, honestly this is a "two bottler" once opened. None of our roses have lasted much longer than 18 months for anyone to notice aging effects. This wine is meant to be sipped on, not stored away...Low alcohol and high acid found in the 2011's.

And yes - these are 750ml bottles. I wish we had magnums!

the Meeker Pink Elephant is more dense in flavor. Charlie is a lover of Rose, I know he'd give the Tramonto a thumbs-up. Actually, I should stop by and take him a few bottles. I owe the Meeker family bigtime, they turned me onto the world of Goldendoodles, I'm now the proud owner of Lord Sandwich- a brother of the Meekers Goldendoodles. 8 months old & 65lbs already!

The Meeker has a more concentrated flavor of tart jolly ranchers. It's also a much deeper shade of red.

This Tramonto is an easier drinking style which is my preference. Due to the concentrated flavor, the Meeker Pink Elephant makes amazing spritzers though.

How would it compare to the Jelly Jar? I was not a fan of the Jelly Jar but really enjoyed the Meeker Pink Elephant. I am thinking it is because of how tart and powerful it was really appealed to me.

Would this be closer to the Jelly Jar?

I literally can't buy a single bottle for a while (only exception is orange wine) due to space and $$, but this sounds excellent!

texacaliali, what's the significance between the different Brack Mountain labels? (i.e. what's the reasoning for this RRV PN Rose being a Tramonto and the other RRV PN Rose being an Origine?)

posting from my iphone so will be brief...we are doing things different in many ways from a traditional winery standpoint. we farm and contract with many vineyards and blocks within certain vineyards which allow us to create very small batches that we put into different labels according to region, varietal and price point. more on this later...a great question that I explain often.

Yes, the effervescence on the nose is due to high levels of dissolved carbon dioxide. We adjust these levels quite high just before bottling to give the wine a nice "freshness".
