Syrah Rosé

2012 Syrah Rose

This newcomer to our wine offerings is the perfect summer wine for drinking as an apéritif or accompanying almost any summertime culinary feast.

This Rosé is bright medium pink. We make it in the style of Provence using the free run juice of our Alexander Valley Syrah with 10% or our Alexander Valley Petite Sirah and ferment the wine slowly at cool temperatures. This low fermentation allows the wine to maintain the fresh delicate aromatics and flavors of the grape. The wine is then cold stabilized and lightly filtered before bottling.

The perfume of this wine is of peaches, plums, cherries and rose petals. On the palate one senses vanilla, almonds, cherries, pineapple guava and a mild minerality. The tannins and acid are perfect. The wine has a nice fresh finish.
