2017 Rosé "McGah Vineyard"

Rutherford, Napa Valley

Tasting Notes

Watermelon rind and Freesia are persistent in the whole cluster pressed Grenache. Completely dry, this component of the blend is all about floral freshness and acidity. The Mourvédre brings weight, texture, color and spice. The Sonoma Cast Stone concrete egg makes the wine round; the acidity is expressed more as minerality rather than tartness. This provides structured balance through the finish, and leaves the palate energized. Our Rosé is made to be light, fresh and consumed immediately. Expect tartrates to form on the cork and bottle. Age at cellar temperature to avoid tartrates buildup.  Serve chilled at 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
