Aromas & Flavors

With aromas and flavors of fresh‐picked wild strawberries, raspberries, watermelon, rhubarb, pomegranate, lingonberries and a touch of blood orange, this refreshing and lively wine offers finesse balanced by mouthwatering acidity and an elegant finish.

Food Pairings

Served chilled, this wine’s light, fruit characteristics make it a natural choice for pairing with fresh seafood like salmon, crab or shrimp, and game meats like duck, Cornish hens, lamb or turkey. Try with Moroccan couscous, Salade Nicoise, melon and prosciutto, or chicken. Cheeses such as fresh chèvre, goat, brie, Roquefort, fromage blanc or Mt. Tam Triple Cream are also delicious.

How It's Made

The grapes for this Rosé are harvested in the early morning hours when it’s cool, then transported to the winery where they are gently destemmed, crushed and cold soaked on the skins for two hours before pressing — just long enough to pick up the wine’s lovely pink and salmon hues and extract flavors from the skins. The grapes are then pressed to tanks and settled for 24 hours. The clean juice is racked and tank fermented, followed by blending and bottling in December.

The Vintage

The 2017 season began with much‐needed record rainfall during the winter months, followed by a mild spring, then a very warm summer, including a scorching hot Labor Day heat spike and unusual rain in September. It finally cooled off into early fall. Overall it was a challenging harvest, but diligent attention in the vineyards led to the perfect blend of aromas and flavors that we desire in our wines.
