Rosé

As opposed to years’ past 100% Carignan rosé, this year’s was led with Zinfandel resulting in a wine that is both fruity and savory. On the nose, it is all about strawberries, raspberries, and a delicate floral note; on the palate it is savory and minerally, with a bone-dry finish.

Vinification Method
Zinfandel and Carignan were whole cluster pressed to separate stainless steel tanks and racked for fermentation after 24 hours of settling, native primary and secondary fermentation, then combined and stored on lees until bottling. Superbloom portion was added close to bottling date and wine was fined with a small amount of bentonite. Wine was filtered prior to bottling.
