This wine shines with aromas of strawberry
shortcake, oranges, vanilla cream, and yellow peaches.
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.
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.
This 2011 Devaux Ranch Rosé is perfect
for starting an evening with a light snack like salmon
rillettes and a fresh baguette.
