86% Merlot, 14% Zinfandel
Rosato / Rose
Our 2018 Rosé includes 86% Merlot fruit from our Estate in Rutherford, Napa Valley. In addition to its historical importance, Rutherford is a premier region for luxury-class wines farmed in the famous “Rutherford Dust.” The fruit was harvested in August 2019 and aged in stainless steel tanks. A portion of Zinfandel was added to the final blend prior to bottling in December 2019.
The 2019 vintage was truly remarkable. With Mother Nature's support, the growing season provided fantastic grape growing conditions. Early warm summer days allowed the grapes to acclimate and develop superior flavor profiles. A cooler fall with a few sporadic heat spikes helped achieve even ripening resulting in robust and full flavors.
