Our 2015 Rosé of Pinot Noir is made in the Saigne style and colors the glass with a beautiful light salmon color. Notes of wild strawberry and rose water lead to an alluring palate of ripe cherry, juicy raspberry and a touch of orange peel. Crisp, well-balanced acidity makes this a perfect wine to be enjoyed with mild cheeses and flakey white fish dishes.
The 2015 growing season was another early harvest, similar to the previous few vintages. While grape yields were down throughout the state, the quality and depth of flavor of the fruit was exceptional. Despite a drier than average year and inconsistent weather patterns, grapes ripened and matured at optimal levels allowing remarkable flavor development resulting in balanced wines. Harvested from the prestigious Sonoma Coast AVA in late August, this beautiful Rosé was picked at its peak of perfection. This delicate grape was aged for 6 months in neutral oak to maintain its fresh flavor.
