The Vintage

Much of our winter rain came late, with almost 12 inches in March alone. With a very warm spring, the vines were running about three weeks early heading into the summer months. July and August were cooler than average, with foggy mornings, mild sunny afternoons and no severe heat spells. Vineyard temperatures rose again in September and harvest dates were early by about two weeks. The heat in the spring and again in the fall provided welcome bookends to the mild summer. The grapes benefited from increased hang time and showed fantastic character development.

The Wine

One of our favorite blocks of Pinot Noir was selected for its lively fruit flavors. The grapes are pressed and kept with the juice for twelve hours, resulting in a vibrant pink hue. Fermented in stainless steel, this wonderful dry rosé never saw barrels and went straight to bottle in early March. Embrace the pink and your nose will be delighted with aromas of strawberries and ripe watermelon. A scrumptious texture is highlighted with flavors of cherry, rhubarb pie with a hint of lemon peel. It has a flirty finish with a grip of orange zest and delicate accents of clove and fig.

Food Affinities

S.I.N. is an irresistible and fun wine that is light enough to pair well with snacks by the pool yet has the backbone and depth to pair well with grilled white meats or dishes with a little spice. For the perfect meal, garnish with good friends, summer weather and laughter. Live on the edge and be S.I.N.ful!
