Winemaker Notes
A lovely pale salmon color in the glass, our 2018 Rosé offers fragrant aromas of strawberry, melon and rose petal. The palate is delicate and crisp, with bright acidity and notes of raspberry, cherry and orange zest. The finish offers a subtle minerality with lingering floral notes. Enjoy this wine on a warm afternoon by itself, or with light seafood or cheese dishes. - David Nakaji, Winemaker

Production Notes
The 2018 growing season was one of the mildest and smoothest in recent memory. Mild spring weather led to good fruit set in most varietals and moderate weather throughout the year made for ideal growing conditions. There were no major heat spikes, which gave us longer hang-time and great ripening on the vine. While a fairly long harvest, the 2018 crop delivered fruit with complex flavors and was of excellent quality. The fruit for our 2018 rosé was hand harvested on September 11, 2018. To maintain freshness and preserve the distinct characteristics of the varietal, we aged in 100% stainless steel and minimized exposure to the air, aiming to create a crisp, fresh style.
Vineyard Notes
Known for its cool, foggy, windy climate and marine soils – the Carneros appellation is an ideal location for Pinot Noir. Our 2018 Rosé was sourced from our own Robert’s Vineyard in the lower Carneros region, close to San Pablo bay. The site features gently rolling hills and unfettered exposure to morning fog and strong afternoon breezes that help define the region.
