Vintage

Winemakers and grape growers are giving high praise for the quality of this year’s Sonoma wine grape harvest which will also be remembered as one of the earliest ever. 2015 capped off a growing season that produced clean and healthy grapes. However, after years of plentiful harvests, California's water shortage finally caught up with the Sonoma County vines. The lower yields have resulted in wines of great fruit intensity.

Winemaker Notes

Our 2015 Rose is a pale salmon color. It’s fresh and loaded with light red fruits. The middle palate has flavors of Honey and Apricot. Our rose is balanced with acidity and is smooth and sleek in the mouth.
