To make our our annual spring release of rosé, we use a blend of Pinot Noir from both our Estate and Carneros vineyards. Harvest is set early in the season when fruit is full of the bright, high toned acidity that lift up the wine. After a 100% direct press, a long, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserves its vibrant aromatics and lets light pink and coral hues seep in and shine through. Energetic and fruit-forward on the nose, with a dry finish that can be easily enjoyed all year, in any weather, at any time of afternoon or night.
2015 meteorological data: A dry, warm winter led to early budbreak; and, heat spikes at the end of summer prompted an early harvest. Despite lower than average yields, fruit was high in flavor and color.
