This wine is our very own “harvest in a bottle,” produced from three red Rhône varietals from three separate and distinct vineyard sites. Made in the saignée style, bleedings from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre from the Edna Valley and Paso Robles Willow Creek District AVAs are blended for balance. There are two main types of soil among the vineyards consisting of calcareous limestone with siliceous shale and clay topsoil with sandy subsoil. Grenache, grown just four miles from the Pacific Ocean, dominates the blend bringing with it the essence of strawberry and bright acidity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Both bouquet and palate are brimming with wild strawberries, cream and rhubarb. Grenache lends bright acidity in the form of fresh lemon zest and citrus fruits, while Syrah and Mourvèdre layer in red fruit and floral notes. This is an intensely enjoyable Rhône rosé that marries concentration with approachability.
Winemaker Notes
Varietals were handpicked in mid-September and October at optimal flavor and phenolic maturity. Each lot had skin contact that varied from 2 to 12 hours, maximizing a balance between freshness and color. The wine was fermented and aged for 6 months in 100% stainless steel.
Food Pairing Notes
Smoked speck | Grilled merguez sausage | Spicy tuna sushi rolls | Indian paneer pakora with tamarind chutney
