The 2007 Querencia has generous aromas of strawberry, watermelon, tropical mango and papaya, followed by the subtle nuttiness of almond cr&eè.
On the palate there are bright flavors of mandarin orange, tart cherry and wild berry, which are completed by crisp raspberry and lime. In addition to the fruitful flavors, there is a delightful creaminess of a 50/50 Creamsicle bar and the richness of warm rhubarb cobbler that finishes with a long snappy and lingering acidity.
Querencia is produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. This vintage is sold out.
Harvest Dates: August 16 - August 28, 2007
Chardonnay forms the blend's core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color. Barrel Fermentation: 22%
This brut rosé sparkling wine is hearty enough to complement the robust flavors of Mediterranean cooking and delicate enough to be served with a truly broad range of appetizers.
