Nose

Fresh, aromatic and enticing aromas of strawberry, cranberry and ripe pear fill the glass.

Palate

Lightweight in the mouth with waves of flavor roll across the palate. A nice touch of acidity on palate give the wine a long, crisp finish.

Growing Conditions

Some vintners have called the 2016 vintage “a near-perfect growing season”. The 2016 growing season was very smooth with warm, mild weather devoid of any noteworthy heat spikes or climatic anomalies. We saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the region’s first significant fall rainstorm arrived in mid-October. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness.

Harvest

Our Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera grapes were harvested at the optimum maturity to capture the bright fruit flavors while retaining fresh acidity.

Winemaking

We made this wine with the Provence style in mind while being true to its California roots and Italian family heritage. Finally, we added just a touch of Muscat for the aromas to round out the blend.

Appearance

Light pink and salmon-colored.
