The 2020 Reserve Rose opens up with aromas of fresh strawberry, and juicy red raspberry, with a hint of orange blossom.
Intense flavors of pomegranate and fresh strawberry are accompanied by balanced acidity and a refreshing crisp finish.
The 2020 growing season, began with heavy rains which enriched the soil with an abundance of nutrients. Fruit set was on course during the spring, just in time for the brief heat spike in June and remaining summer warm weather. Harvest began in mid-August where only the finest fruit was harvested.
Our 2020 Napa Valley Reserve Rosé is produced using the Saignée Method. The process produces not just a Rosé but a red wine as well. Early in the maceration process, we remove some of the juice and vinify it separately as a Rosé. The rest of the juice is left to continue vinifying into a more concentrated red wine. We chose the Saignée Method since it produces Rosés richer in style and color.
This Rosé can be enjoyed alongside lighter meals like spicy paella, fresh crab cakes, or roasted chicken with garden vegetables.
