Nose

Winemaker Sara Fowler harvests a small portion of our estate Cabernet Franc early to craft this beautiful Rosé of Cabernet Franc. Fruit forward aromas of dried strawberry, watermelon, and hints of green pear jump from the glass enticing you to take your first sip. The palate is lively with an essence of spicy green mango salad that balances perfectly with notes of strawberries and cream. Incredibly refreshing, this Rosé is the ultimate Summer sipper

Growing Conditions

Persephone Vineyard is our 350-acre estate in the heart of Pope Valley, a largely undiscovered grape-growing region in the northeast corner of Napa Valley. The ranch is planted with 130 acres of vines, which includes our Bordeaux grape varieties as well as Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. At nearly 1,000 feet elevation, the area is characterized by wide temperature swings and little fog, which allows for a consistent growing season and produces fruit with rich, focused flavor, and a precise sense of place. Persephone is sustainably farmed, moving towards organic certification. The 2020 season will be remembered for factors beyond the normal measurements. Here in the valley, it was a warm, dry winter and we didn't start to see rain and cold weather until the end of March. Summer brought very cool mornings and very warm days. The wines are showing excellent development. While the 2020 Napa Valley harvest proved to be one of the most challenging in history, we are committed to bottling wines of the highest quality.
