Our Rosé is a delightful result of our Cabernet Sauvignon winemaking. Our Rosé production uses a technique known by the French name “saigneé” for concentrating the flavors in our Cabernet Sauvignon wine by bleeding off a portion of the juice after almost no skin contact. The juice is light pink and is allowed to cold ferment slowly for over 3 weeks resulting in a light, flavorful, and fruity Rosé wine. The wine is then aged in neutral barrels for 3 months.
Our 2021 rosé is a beautiful rose gold in the bottle. A unique wine with a bouquet of white peach, cosmic crisp apple, and a hint of toffee. The palate is bright with notes of cotton candy and gardenia followed by a touch of lemon zest. This wine is fermented dry yet retains a bit of density and weight on the finish. Pair with BBQ, jambon beurre sandwich, or caprese salad. This is a red wine lover’s rosé.
