An unabashed extrovert, this full-bodied and lively rosé has the personality to mix naturally with warm weather, great food, and dynamic company.
Composition 72% Zinfandel, 28% Merlot
· Vibrantly colored, with a soft, round entry and a long, lingering finish · Beautifully lifted aromas of ripe wild strawberries and citrus flowers, with subtle minerality and a luxurious hint of crème fraiche · The flavors are filled with juicy wild berry notes and crisp citrus zest, all supported by fresh, focused acidity
· Due to a wet spring and long, mild growing season, the 2010 harvest began two weeks later than normal · A strong heat wave and late rains required us to be extra diligent during harvest, with a focus on fine-tuning and timely picking · As is often the case in milder years, our 2010 wines are marked by their elegance and balanced natural acidity—qualities we have worked to preserve in the winery
