To craft our Napa Valley Rosé, we relied on the traditional saignée method, allowing free-run juice to drain out of the tank after one to five hours of skin contact. The juice was kept cool during its five to six weeks of fermentation to capture the maximum expression of fresh aromas and flavors.
This beautiful Rosé has generous aromas of sweet peach, wild strawberry, passion fruit and lemon zest. The palate is equally inviting with recurring peach, strawberry, watermelon and citrus notes. This Rosé has big minerality, balanced acidity and a long, voluptuous finish. One sip will leave you wanting more.
Napa Valley experienced an above-average rainfall in the early months of 2019 with over 50 inches of rain in Rutherford. The residual moisture and colder than average soils led to a delayed start in budbreak. Spring and summer enjoyed moderate temperatures with no significant heat spikes until August. Harvest began in mid-September and finished the first week of November.
Each of our five vineyards is certified organic. They are farmed naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides.
