We believe that when you close your eyes a rosé should taste and feel like a white wine.  That is to say it should have bright flavors and move with crispness on the palate.  With the 2016 vintage, we are proud to offer our fifth edition of this refreshing still wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The delicate nose offers tangerine, rhubarb, melon, and crushed rose petal. On the palate, one finds strawberry, gooseberry, stone fruits and crème fraiche all supported on a frame of firm acidity.
Vineyard Notes
We night picked a few tons of Pommard clone Pinot Noir for its pure expression of delicate summer fruit flavors. The fruit was greatly whole cluster pressed in the cool morning air to liberate the juice from the skins with minimal contact. Fermentation was conducted in a range of vessels; stainless barrels to preserve fruit, and neutral cooperate to add body and texture. Special yeasts were selected to enhance fruit profile, and the malo-lactic fermentation inhibited to preserve acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs beautifully with Niçoise salad, ahi tuna tartare, smoked salmon or Caprese salad.
