2018 Rosé of Carignan
With everyone jumping on the bandwagon, it may seem that a rosé is a rosé is a rosé. We craft a true expression of rosé, rather than a financial afterthought. Picked early expressly for rosé at 20 Brix to ensure its lively nature, this Rosé offers a vibrant expression of Carignan.
This 3 barrel, 75 case lot of rosé comes from a 45 year old, head trained, dry farmed, organically certified vineyard in Hopland, Mendocino. We are very excited to be able to lease half of this vineyard, working closely with the 2nd generation grower. Fermented with native yeast, aged in 50% stainless steel, 50% neutral barrel. A fresh, vibrant wine that can be enjoyed all year long.
