Nose

This wine shines with aromas of strawberry shortcake, oranges, vanilla cream, and yellow peaches.

Palate

On the palate, the rich, creamy mouthfeel is balanced by bright acidity. A raspberry note takes center stage, and leads to a long, crisp finish.

Growing Conditions

The grapes for this wine were sourced exclusively from our Devaux vineyard in the coveted Carneros AVA in southern Napa Valley. 2011 brought a cool summer to the Napa Valley, and with it, a late harvest. The extra hang time allowed for a full flavor development at Devaux Ranch, while still maintaining the bright acidity that is the hallmark of all great sparkling wines. Pinot Noir was especially expressive in this vintage, inspiring us to create the first ever Devaux Ranch Rosé.

Food Pairing

This 2011 Devaux Ranch Rosé is perfect for starting an evening with a light snack like salmon rillettes and a fresh baguette.
