Balance is essential to achieve quality and enjoyment

Rose of Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Rosé d’Été means Rosé of the summer– a refreshing wine that embodies the moments and memories of warm summer days. Enjoy buckets of fresh strawberry flavors. 2019 had many warm days including some intense heat spikes, creating expressive fruitiness, but an extended October cooler ripening period preserved the crispness.
Our Rosé shows the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon with the light heartedness of a Rose. A firm structure with bright strawberry aromatics and flavors! The Rosé is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
From the Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, which benefits from the cool down effect of late morning fog from the San Francisco Bay and cool afternoon breezes. This allows for a longer hand time for the grapes to slowly ripen.
A refreshing aperitif to sip alone. Pair with goat cheese, white hard cheeses such as gruyere with sliced apples, figs or grilled stone fruits; shellfish, fish simply prepared, and grilled chicken.
Stainless steel. 24 hour skin contact.
Drinkable NOW. Lovely to drink for 2 years because it is Cabernet!
