We are in this business for the enjoyment of nature and the gratifying and joyful experience of sharing distinctive wines with our families and friends. To produce “Grand-Cru” quality wines, that captivate and are meaningful to people- this is our lifelong mission.
--Kathryn and Paul Sloan

Owning only a pick-up truck and a shovel; as a young wine steward, Paul Sloan dreamed of making Estate Grown, world-class, wines of distinction, far before we could afford to buy an “Estate” in California. Compelled by an ethereal experience with a rare Burgundy, he relentlessly pursued his plan to innovate winegrowing in California and grow only small vines to create meaningful wines of authenticity, balance and structure.

From obsessively tended vines in four outstanding Estate vineyards, this Rosé of Pinot Noir is made from specific shade regions of our vineyards that are farmed without the use of synthetic chemicals. These small lots are selected by hand to be harvested slightly less ripe than their Pinot Noir neighbors.

94pts Wine Enthusiast: Aged in neutral oak and made from great grapes, this shines in layers of bright refreshing acidity and sharp focused flavors of orange, grapefruit and cherry. Complex and beautiful, this is a wine that needs to be in your glass.

TASTING NOTES 

Made purposefully, as a Vin Gris style, the fruit is taken straight to the press and then fermented with native yeasts from the vineyard in neutral oak barrels. This Rosé is elegantly made in the same style as a base wine for Champagne- and delightfully compliments a large array of menus. It is bright, crisp, complex, completely dry and unbelievably refreshing. Clean, complex and delightfully low alcohol. Completely dry- No residual sugar. The zippy acidity and fresh fruit make this a year-round, food pairing delight.
