The Vintage

The spring was warm and dry, getting the vines off to an early start. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer but was free of damaging heat spells. September brought a classic Napa Valley autumn with warm days and very cool nights. With the consistent warmth, the harvest began about two weeks early and we had a very busy September. The beautiful growing season resulted in truly exceptional wines—full of ripe flavors, developed in the sunshine, and balanced by natural acidity from the cool nights.

The Wine

One of our favorite blocks of Pinot Noir is selected because of its lively fruit flavors. The grapes are pressed and left with the juice for just twelve hours in order to enhance the bright vibrant pink hue. Fermented in stainless steel this wonderful dry rosé never saw barrel but went straight to bottle in early March to preserve its wonderful brightness. The wine is pleasing to the eye and scrumptious on the lips. Refreshing flavors of cherry, strawberry and watermelon highlight the palate of this bright and lively wine. Best consumed on your front porch on a summer day. Less than 450 cases produced.

Food Affinities

Rosé is a beautiful, festive wine that goes hand-in-hand with good times. A perfect complement with picnic fare, it also goes well with salty or spicy full-flavored dishes from many parts of the world. Or, serve it with anything pink—lobster, shrimp or ham.
