Our Brut Reserve Rosé displays fresh, fragrant strawberry jam and dark plum
Creamy and impressively dense on the palate, its bright red fruit
flavors pick up a pleasing dash of spice in the long, crisp finish.
Our multi-vintage Brut Reserve Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay, with a small amount of red wine added to enhance the lovely
color, body, and flavor. This sparkling Rosé achieves Reserve status from
double the tirage aging time as our non-vintage Brut Rosé.
Our Brut Reserve Rosé is an assemblage of up to 20 different vineyard lots
throughout the Napa appellation and 30 different blending components to
achieve our house style. The grapes are hand-harvested during the crisp
morning hours to ensure they arrive at the winery in pristine condition.
The characteristic coral pink tint on this sparkling wine comes from a small
amount of Pinot Noir fruit, left to ripen fully on the vine, which is then
fermented in traditional Burgundian fashion and added to the blend. A long
cold soak prior to fermentation extracts color and flavor, but little tannin,
from this mini-lot of Pinot Noir. The result is a wine with a gorgeous color
and rich, red fruit character.
To further enrich the wine, 20% of the base wine
is aged in French oak barrels prior to the second fermentation in a bottle. The
final blend spends 36 months en tirage, which fosters its creamy texture and
rich mid-palate flavors
Pair this versatile and balanced sparkling wine with roast turkey or ham, and
