Toast the Season with Exceptional Rosé Wines
The winery-exclusive 2015 Brut Rosé is synonymous with springtime! The aromas showcase bright strawberry, cherry and pomegranate, followed by lush notes of bright red fruit, red apple and a touch of citrus zest. The texture is full and creamy, carrying through to a crisp mineral finish. The composition (90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay) from Carneros appellation produces a wine of unique fruit character that pairs well with food.
The still counterpart to the Brut Rosé is the 2017 Pinot Noir Rosé, a dry, light-pink wine that is both festive and refined. A delicate and crisp wine with vibrant acidity, floral and strawberry characters swirl in the glass with a hint of peach, leading into a bright and clean finish.
If you prefer a white wine, try the 2017 Pinot Blanc. Crafted from 100% Estate fruit, the Pinot Blanc is perfect for spring – crisp, light and aromatic. Aromas of melon and peach flow into flavors of lime, ripe stone fruit and a hint of green apple.
