Our inaugural release 2020 rosé of malbec is a vibrant and fresh expression of Russian River Valley fruit.

A lovely pale salmon color in the glass, this wine opens with bright aromas of strawberry, citrus and rose petal. The palate is crisp and refreshing with lively acidity and flavors of juicy melon, guava, citrus blossom. The finish is soft and round with a subtle minerality.

Winemaker Notes

The winter of 2019-2020 produced average rainfall in Sonoma County with the bulk of rainfall January through May. Spring temperatures were mild and warm, with bud break two weeks earlier than average. Temperatures during the summer were above average, which led to early grape ripening and an early harvest.
