Our 2019 Napa Valley Reserve Rosé is produced using the Saignée Method. The process produces not just a Rosé but a red wine as well. Early in the maceration process, we remove some of the juice and vinify it separately as a Rosé. The rest of the juice is left to continue vinifying into a more concentrated red wine. We chose the Saignée Method since it produces Rosés richer in style and color.
The 2019 growing season, began with heavy rains which enriched the soil with an abundance of nutrients. Fruit set was on course during the spring, just in time for the brief heat spike in June and remaining summer warm weather. Harvest began in mid-August where only the finest fruit was harvested.
Food Pairing Notes
This Rosé can be enjoyed alongside spicy shimp tacos, fresh crab cakes, or roasted chicken with garden vegetables.
