VINTAGE: 2018 was one of the best vintages California has seen! Warm days and cool nights yielded wines with ripe flavors, ample structure
and vibrant acidity. A warm Summer was followed by a moderate Fall, allowing for extended hang time and the perfect flavor development.
TASTING NOTES: In a tip of the cap to Old World nuance and sophistication, our 2018 Napa Valley Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon
reveals whispers of tart cherries, complimented by subtle hints ofapricots and atsuma oranges. Distinct aromas of wild strawberries, hibiscus and ripe watermelons. We’ve opted for the complexity and elegance afforded by aging in neutral oak barrels. This slow world technique delivers polished structure and more depth and richness to the palate including a nice finish. Light and pretty, this Rosé is crisp and dry with nice acidity and a soft mouth feel.
AGING: 4 months in neutral French oak barrels. Drink now or age through 2021.
