2018 Rosé of Grenache, Sonoma Valley
The grapes used for this Rhône-varietal are sourced from Landa Vineyard, located in the low eastern foothills of the Mayacamas, tucked away just one mile from the town square in Sonoma. The 2018 vintage was very slow and steady. The fruit was able to gradually and slowly ripen, holding its acid and allowing it to develop complexity on the vine. The grapes were harvested from chosen blocks, at perfect ripeness, specifically for producing this Rosé wine, resulting in a wine with great texture and acidity.
Lifted notes of white peach, wild raspberry, grapefruit, and Honey Crisp apple are supported by a mineral backbone and a pretty floral bouquet. The acid is focused with nice, balanced structure. Delicate, yet mouth-filling, flavors of wild strawberry, grapefruit, peach skin and white tea leaves come together in this brilliant and vibrant sipper.
