2021 S.I.N. Rosé 2021
$30 / Bottle (750ml)
No matter the season, our food-friendly Summer in Napa Rosé will bring a delicious taste of Napa Valley to your home.
The preceding winter, which marked our second consecutive drought year, featured the lowest rainfall total in our entire history, going back to 1968. The vines grew vigorously during the warm and dry spring as the vineyard team did an excellent job with early weed control and irrigation. The summer months, from June through September, were all cooler than average, which slowed down the ripening process and allowed for fantastic flavor development. The yields were lower than usual, given the drought conditions, but the resulting wines are all excellent and reflect our unique location in the Oak Knoll District at the cooler southern end of Napa Valley.
A fan favorite, this S.I.N. Rosé of Pinot Noir is enticing with aromas of fresh watermelon, peach, strawberry, and orange peel. On the palate, this wine is full and bright with flavors of red grapefruit, strawberry, and lychee with lively acidity and a mouthwatering finish that can only be enhanced by enjoying a “Summer In Napa.”
S.I.N. is the perfect summertime wine. It’s light enough to pair with fresh garden fare but can easily match the complexity of grilled or caramelized white meats. Chef Chris Kennedy suggests enjoying a chilled glass poolside with Minted Sweet Peas with Spanish Ham & Toasted Brioche.
