aromas of rose petals and wild strawberries.

Palate

This surprisingly complex Rose fills the mouth with flavors of sweet Bing cherry, and rich red berry. Crisp acidity gives the wine balance

Growing Conditions

The 2012 growing season in Napa Valley was about as perfect as it could be for grape growing. An abundance of evenly ripened grapes gave winemakers the opportunity to take only the best fruit. A mild spring led to a near perfect pageant of spring bud break, steady flowering, and even fruit set. A long stretch of perfect summer days that grapes love - wide temperature swings, from the low 50s at night to at least 85 degrees every day gave them a long, slow ripening process. Late and light rains held off until the grapes arrived on the crush pads. This will certainly be remembered as one of the very best ever for the Napa Valley.
