2019 Sonoma Coast
Rosé of Pinot Noir

Bright notes of fresh berries balanced by a vibrant acidity and flinty minerality. Limited release perfect for summer picnics.

Our all-new rosé opens with a delicate pale salmon color and aromas of white tea, kumquat, and barely ripened strawberry. Layered with notes of fresh tart raspberry, juicy peach, ride along a flinty mineral backbone. The vibrant acidity creates a refreshing finish, making it a great compliment to outdoor dining or to be enjoyed by itself.

Sonoma Coast

The vineyards along the Sonoma Coast feature marine influences that define this sweeping appellation, an area that stretches from the San Pablo Bay all the way to the Mendocino County line.

 

 

The Sonoma Coast American Viticulture Area (AVA) covers over 480,000 acres, with roughly 7,000 acres planted with vines.  Temperatures are moderate, with evenings dipping to 40s as a result of the fog off Bodega Bay and day time highs typically in the low 70s.  Growing grapes in the dramatically cool western reaches of Sonoma County is complex and demanding, with the end result truly worth the risk. The resulting fruit produces wines that are elegant and intensely structured.
