Nose

The 2008 Querencia impresses with generous aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry jam and a delicate candied orange, followed by subtle hints of strawberry and lime.

Palate

On the palate there are rich flavors of ruby grapefruit, spicy English candy, and tart orange, complimented with a touch of brioche and cinnamon roll. Snappy and crisp on entry, the wine’s pretty citrus flavors carry a long way on the finish.

Growing Conditions

Querencia is produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. This vintage is sold out.

Harvest

Harvest Dates: August 13th - September 15th, 2008

Winemaking

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: 45%

Food Pairing

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.
