2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir
Our 2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir has aromas and flavors of perfectly ripe Hood strawberries, tart raspberry, red apple, jasmine flowers, and wet rock minerality. The ripe fruit and mineral elements are balanced by clean, refreshing acidity leading to a satisfying finish. A perfect match for the patio!
How we make our Rosé
Our Rosé is made of free-run juice collected from hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes as they move through the processing line and fermented clear in stainless steel tanks until all the sugar has been converted into alcohol. The color is achieved by an addition of 2-3% Pinot Noir, giving us the ability to have consistent color year after year. Finished with a screw-cap for continuously fresh and available wine ready for a day at the beach or a hearty holiday meal.
The 2020 Vintage
The 2020 growing season started with a small fruit-set and mild summer weather. Soon we faced the challenges of farming during a pandemic and wildfires, but we, along with our growing partners managed to adapt to the difficulties of the vintage. We ran more laboratory tests than ever before, with dozens of samples sent to multiple laboratories, and are committed to releasing only wines free of smoke-affect that passed our rigorous tests. In 2020 you can expect wines with great concentration and freshness of the fruit.
