To craft our Napa Valley Rose, we relied on the traditional saignee 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 Rose presents aromas of floral white peach, juicy nectarine, tart rhubarb and zesty lemon cream . The palate mirrors these aromas with flavors of peach and rhubarb pie along with strawberry, watermelon and citrus. The bright flavors and minerality are balanced by pleasant acidity that carries a long finish. One sip will leave you wanting more.
The 2020 growing season was slightly cooler than the previous year and brought very little rainfall. Harvest season began about two weeks early, due to the resulting dry soil. Two major heat waves occurred, but our well-conditioned vines were able to withstand the heat and prevent any damage to the grapes. We began harvest the third week of August and brought in a small crop of exceptional quality.
Each of our five vineyards is certified organic. They are farmed naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides.
