Rosé of
Pinot Noir 2017

AWARDS & REVIEWS

Delicate aromas of rose petals. The dry Rosé provokes ripe strawberry and crisp flavors complemented by a thrill of sour cherries. Finishes with elegant grip and pretty lingering acid.

Production notes

80% of the Pinot Noir was whole cluster pressed to eliminate skin contact. 20% of the fruit was crushed with overnight skin contact then pressed. This
small amount of skin contact extracts a small amount of color and tannin from the grapes. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tank under temperature control to retain fruit flavor.

Growing Season: A cool growing season. The wet, cool spring delayed flowering for the region’s Pinot Noir vines until late June, setting the stage for a later harvest. Warm, dry conditions prevailed through the summer with a higher than average fruit set.
