Bright red fruit characters dominate a delicate aroma and flavor profile. In the mouth, fresh strawberry and raspberry flavors accent a balanced mouthfeel ending with a brilliant crisp finish.
This Rosé with 12.8% Alc. is an elegant example of the Green Valley portion of the Russian River Valley area fruit.
A refreshing low alcohol Rosé which will pair well with fresh salmon, seared scallops or simply a front porch swing on a warm summer afternoon.
2013 was a moderate Spring with hardly any cold days. Frost was not an issue so the growth into bloom was even and without rain incidents. We saw the marine pattern slowing the growth and maturity through mid summer. Heat in August and early September pushed the berries to ripeness and enabled us to get great hang time without too many issues with rain. Harvest was the second week of September.
We ferment in small lots punching down twice a day to get maximum extraction from the skins. We age over for 15 months to give the wines more time to integrate with the oak. We use a variety of new, once and twice filled French Oak barrels from several different coopers and forests.

On the palate it reveals dark cherry and plum. It has a lovely boysenberry character on the nose, beautiful structure with soft tannins and a delicate balance of fruit, acid and oak.
The acidity makes this wine very good with foods and rewards the patient oenophile with the tertiary flavors you can find in an aged Red Burgundy. It is very smooth and approachable and should reach its peak in 4 to 5 years.
