TASTING NOTES 

"The 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir was harvested at a cool 21° Brix and immediately whole cluster pressed, crafted in a true vin gris style, fermented like a white wine without skin or seed contact. This enticingly aromatic wine is bone dry, delicate in structure, with racy acidity and 12.6% alcohol. Consistent with the 2017 vintage, we blended two cool-climate appellations: Sonoma Coast (38%) and Mendocino Ridge (62%). The Manchester Ridge and Mariah Vineyard from the Mendocino Ridge appellation sit at about 2000 feet in elevation, situated extremely close to the vast Pacific Ocean, offering us unparalleled acidity. The vineyards from the Sonoma Coast appellation are all located within 8 miles of the coastline, set in the rolling hills of the true Sonoma Coast. Fruit from these vineyards perfectly complement those from Mendocino, allowing us to achieve the crisp, lively style of Rosé we strive to produce.
