Beautiful and delicate, this wine has soft perfume aromas complemented by strawberry and lemon, the flavors are the essence of freshness, reminiscent of cucumber/rose water cooling you like a spring breeze. The finish is crisp and bright leaving an impression of orange zest.
These vineyards yield rich fruit forward wines characteristic of the terroir. Pope Valley vineyards are located in the North-Eastern hills of the Vaca Mountains in a town called Pope Valley within the Napa Valley Appellation. The soil is a pleaston loam with areas of a Bressa-Dibble complex. Pope Valley is a warm growing climate with cool evenings and mornings which allow the grapes to hang on the vine long enough to ripen to their fullest potential and cool enough at nights to develop complex varietal aromas.
These grapes were grown in our Sangiovese block farmed especially for Rose, we give the wines a little more water and room to grow to create the subtle fresh flavor we love. We hand harvested the fruit on a cold morning and let it rest in the cellar for 72 hours prior to pressing for subtle extraction of flavors from the skins. The pressed juice was slowly fermented in stainless steel for a crisp focused wine.
Blend: 100% Sangiovese
