Winery Notes:
CERTIFIED SUSTAINABLE:
The Niven family’s estate vineyard, Paragon, has earned the Sustainability in Practice (SIP TM) Vineyard Certification. The family has ensured that these vineyards have historically been farmed in a careful and responsible manner, taking into account all facets of the surrounding environment. Certification proves their collective commitment environmental stewardship, economic viability, and equitable treatment of employees. SIP TM provides a comprehensive and verifiable method to authenticate a vineyard’s attention to integrated farming practices.

TANGENT ROSÉ:
Owned and farmed by the Niven family, the Paragon Vineyard in the Edna Valley of California provides the grapes for this wine. Originally planted in 1973, the historic Paragon Vineyard pioneered modern day viticulture in the now Edna Valley. With the Pacific Ocean lying only five miles to the west, its influence creates one of the longest growing seasons in the state. The extended hang time encourages full ripening and development of intense varietal character while preserving minerality and a good acid backbone, a Tangent imperative.

Tangent is constantly innovating and thinking outside the box. Our Rosé represents a modern avant-garde approach to a new progressive category of New World Rosés. We turned the Rosé recipe upside down and utilized our unique and rare cool climate Albariño, Viognier, Pinot Noir, and Syrah.

TASTING NOTES FROM WINEMAKER CHRISTIAN ROGUENANT:
”The Pinot Noir brings a salmon nuance while the hints of Syrah and Grenache add a cherry hue to the Rose. Albariño delivers rose petal, banana, apple and pear, while the Viognier contributes floral and subtle notes of tropical fruits.”
