The Rose Cuvée is a blend of four traditionally Rhône-grown varieties — Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Viognier. This dry, floral and fruity rosé is very seductive on the palate and is an ideal complement for spring and summer cuisines.
This wine is a multifaceted Rhône-styled blend of Syrah and Grenache that redefines itself again and again over the course of a glass. This blend is named for Richard’s wife and co-proprietor, Alis Demers Arrowood, the true love of his life.

This wine is an excellent example of what this grape can become; the tannins are big, yet they are also round, firm, and elegantly smooth. The acidity is intense, yet carefully balances the wines body and depth of flavor.

The 2011 vintage proved to be exceptional, yielding complex, balanced, and ripe fruit that resulted in lush, full-bodied wine. Plump raspberries, tart red currants, and just a hint of blueberry jam unfold on a rich bed of tannins backing up a bracing acidity. Notice how the front of the palate is crisp, with a distinct character of tart Rainier cherries.
Named after Richard’s wife and co-proprietor, Alis Demers Arrowood, this intense Rhône blend of 65 percent Syrah and 35 percent Grenache from estate vines offers a lightly perfumed nose of candied fruit, warm cherry pie and a hint of pepper and smoke.
