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, Syrah, with small amounts of Malbec and Pinot Noir (3% each) as well as Gamay (2%).
A super ripe vineyard block of Merlot was crushed directly to the press, given minimal skin contact, then pressed and blended with small portions of juice drained (saigneé) during cold soak from blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon (8%), Cabernet Franc (7%) and Syrah (5%), as well as Malbec (3%), Pinot Noir (3%) and Gamay (2%). Fermented cool in stainless steel leaving a small amount of residula sugar remaining for an off-dry finish.
