Bright aromas of wild flowers and field berries, red cherry and raspberry on the palate, and a juicy finish that goes on and on. . . this Rosé is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.
A super ripe vineyard block of Merlot was crushed directly to the press, given 1 hr skin contact, then pressed and blended with small portions of juice drained (saignée) during cold soak from blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon (15%), Cabernet Franc (14%) and Syrah (10%). Fermented cool in stainless steel leaving a small amount of residual sugar remaining, for an off-dry finish.
