2018 Pinot noir Rosé
The grapes for this Estate Rosé were farmed specifically and picked early from three different sites in three different AVAs, in order to maintain freshness and natural acidity while enhancing complexity. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and fermented, then aged in neutral oak barrels. The 2018 Rosé of Pinot noir opens with aromas of strawberry and peach, moving into kiwi fruit and fresh ginger. Candied lemon peel mixed with cantaloupe showcases both the citrus and tropical elements of the wine. A concentrated floral quality mixed with passion fruit leaps from the glass. The palate invites weight from barrel aging while maintaining a focused, zippy and mineral finish.
The 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir pairs exceptionally well with yard games and belly laughs, tan lines and BBQs, lawn chairs and friends. Not solely intended for Summer, this wine pairs well with all seasons but will harken us back to warmer times on even the grayest of February days. The 2018 Rosé of Pinot noir is a wonderful, food-friendly wine. Enjoy with seafood, lighter meats, cheese and charcuterie as well as spicy foods. The wine really does have enough body to stand up to most dishes. Always intended to pair with friends, food and good conversations. Cheers!
