Wine Advocate

90 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Armada Vineyard is also the source of Baron's rosé, which he produces from two rows of vines where he doesn't thin the crop, resulting in yields over two tons per acre, which he harvests at lower sugar levels. The 2016 Grenache Rosé Edith is excellent, weighing in at a mere 12.2% alcohol and offering up complex aromas of orange rind, red apple and orange blossom. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, glossy and bright, with lovely cut and delicate phenolic grip that makes it even more mouthwatering. It was whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel and concrete." 06/18

Vinous Media

90 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(this wine now spends 24 hours on its skins, up from 15 previously; according to assistant winemaker Elizabeth Bourcier, "it's getting more body without really dark color"): Pale pink. Aromas of strawberry, watermelon and spices. Nicely concentrated, tactile wine that's technically dry at less than two grams per liter but offers a seductive hint of sweetness, plus a bit of CO2 spritz. With its sound acidity, this slightly dusty wine would pair well with oysters. This is more like a Sancerre Rosé than something from farther to the south. Christophe Baron makes this wine from six rows of vines grown specifically for rosé, cropped higher than his red Grenache and picked at between 21.5 and 22 degrees Brix. (12.2% alcohol)" 11/18

Wine Enthusiast

92 Points, Sean P. Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is consistently at the top of the class. Pale copper in color with a slight peach tinge, the aromas show appealing notes of wet stone and mountain strawberry along with a kiss of herb. The flavors are bright and vivid, while remaining light on their feet. There's a complexity seldom seen in this category. A long, citrus-filled finish caps it off. It's a big-time winner, bringing a sense of seriousness and irreverence at the same time." 10/18
