Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) Over the years, we have refined our approach when it comes to the style of our Dry Rosé. The focus is on crisp acidity and true varietal character allowing the fresh Zinfandel flavors to shine. 2015 brought a near-perfect growing season and harvest giving the fruit good concentration of aromas and flavors. Our Rosé is made by combining free run juice from early picked grapes (60% of the blend) and 40% saignée (juice which was drawn from the fermenting tank of fully ripened Zinfandel). Fermentation is finished in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Even though we make it in a dry style, the wine retains a hint of sweetness because of the fruitiness of the Zinfandel grape. Bottled a few months after harvest, the wine captures the freshness of the vintage.
