Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of strawberry, lime and Bartlett pear. Flavors of creme fresh, orange zest and papaya.
Vineyard Notes
One vineyard sits between 900' and 1200' elevation. Southeast aspect, with 10% grade. Rocky soil comprised of shale, limestone and clay. The other is a similar elevation but is comprised of green stone and quartz with a Southwest aspect.
Production Notes
This rose is made from pressing red grapes, and from the traditional "saignee" method. Part of the juice was fermented in French oak barrels and the other portion was fermented in tank. This is a blend of Cab Franc, Cab Sauvignon and Merlot.
Winemaker Notes
2017 was a very high quality vintage with higher than normal yields. The growing season was hot and dry allowing for optimal ripening and acid retention in both red and white cultivars. Fruit was picked 10-14 days earlier than the previous vintage and came in with ideal physiological and chemical ripeness.
