2019 Rosé of Pinot Noir Anderson Valley
Rosé of Pinot Noir
“The light pink color is shaded with a salmon hue that shows the delicate character of the wine. On the nose, the perfumes are intense – it’s floral and spicy at first then opens toward a delicate strawberry and citrusy notes. The palate is dense and lively with intermixing spice, floral, and again small strawberry tones. Clean and focused on the finish, a clear appeal for the next glass.” — Stéphane Vivier
2019 was a very wet winter with rain coming into spring. Keeping the vines in balance was especially important this year. Successful management of the vines along with wonderfully mild weather through summer gave us warm days and cool nights. This is a recipe for success in vineyards, the vintage gave us a great balance of sugar and acid with complete phenolic ripening. We had ripe flavors with freshness along with nice acid balance.
