About This Wine:
In that regard, you might call Jason Bushong a rebel — at least when it comes to his Bushong Cellars “Pretty in Pink” Rosé.
“’Pretty in Pink’ has come a long way since its inception in 2013,” Bushong tells us. “Each vintage has been exceptionally different, from production style to varietal breakdown. With the 2020 vintage, we truly feel we found our groove.” Bushong adds that it wasn’t necessarily about adopting an “anti-Provence” style, but rather embracing more of a “pro-Tavel” style.
That meant utilizing a higher tannin level, which intensifies the wine’s color and improves its aging potential. “The portion of Tannat (23%) was saignée taken during the de-stemming of grapes from Barr Estate,” Bushong explains. “The result is heavy, in a deep way” — and a wine of which he is proud to say: “We’ve hit our stride.”
