Tasting Notes:
As Gary Galleron says about our Rosé, “this is a real wine.” Our 2016 Sonoma Valley Rosé is rich and round as well as smooth and beautifully balanced. We used Merlot, Malbec and Syrah and a touch of Zin to blend this hearty Rosé. The aromatics are clean and fresh with strawberries, honeysuckle, and pink grapefruit. It has a crisp acidity and flavors that match the aromas. Although our Rosé is refreshing and easy to drink, this wine will also be great with food.

Vineyards & Winemaking:
The fruit for our 2016 Sonoma Valley Rosé comes from several great vineyards in the Sonoma Valley. We used fruit from various different areas in the region that enjoy a long growing season that ripens its fruit fully while retaining its bright acidity.

Food Friendly:
The food pairing options with our Rosé are almost countless. Our limited release Rosé will pair well with seared tuna or can add balance to a Mediterranean fish dish or grilled Salmon. It is also a great choice to pair with paella and other tapas dishes. The fruity characteristics combined with acidity make this Rosé a great match for most cheeses as well.
