2016 Rosé of Pinot Noir Anderson Valley
"Light and brilliant salmon pink color. The nose is intense and intermixing notes of peach, pear, and strawberry scented rose. The energy of the wine is obvious, pairing an alluring and fresh texture with elegant fruit and floral notes. It is full bodied yet fresh on the palate, with tender fruitiness and red berries. Easy going and at the same time solid on its feet and ready for a long summer!" — Stephane Vivier
The growing season got off to a very fast start, despite the rainy winter, temperatures stayed warm. Early in the season we were predicting harvest to track with the 2015 vintage. Early in August the weather took a turn to a steady and cool regimen, a blessing to prolonged the season and add many days for all the flavors and textural elements of the grapes to slowly ripen to perfection.
