Our 2018 Napa Valley Rosé is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in our sustainably-farmed Napa Valley estate vineyards. We made the wine using a classic technique known as Saignée or Bleeding, in which the grape skins remain in contact with the juice for a very short period of time so as not to impart too much color. After hand picking, the red grapes are crushed and separated from the stems and placed in a stainless steel tank. As the skins separate from the juice they rise to the top, forming a cap. Shortly thereafter, we open a valve at the bottom of the tank and a portion of the pink juice is pumped into another tank for fermentation. The wine was subsequently aged for four months in seasoned French oak barrels. Our 2018 Rosé is a gorgeous, salmon-hued wine showing young, fragrant aromas of ripe strawberry, red raspberry and pomegranate with lovely nuances of rose and jasmine. Similar flavors follow through on the palate, which is rich with buttery overtones. This Rosé straddles the line between a red and white wine, with fresh acidity that keeps the finish lively and bright. Ideal for spring and summer sipping, the wine is delicious on its own but also a great match for grilled fish and seafood, fresh tomato bruschetta, grilled chicken skewers with peanut sauce and/or tuna salad nicoise.

On the Vine

2018 brought a long, steady and near-ideal growing season to Napa Valley. Bud break began in late February/early March followed by an extended flowering period in May/June that yielded uniform grape clusters. The summer continued with typical warm temperatures but no significant heat spikes. Harvest was later than in recent years, accompanied by mild weather through September and October that allowed grapes to be picked at optimum ripeness and flavor. Napa winemakers agreed that 2018 was one of the least eventful and finest growing seasons they’d witnessed, yielding wines of intensity, concentration and balance.
