This dry rose of 100% syrah offers summertime aromatics of blood orange, strawberry and watermelon rind. Delicate nuances from cranberry to red delicious apple harmonize on the palate with rose petal and grilled herbs. A clean and crisp finish with mouth-watering acid brings a liveliness that’s hard to resist. A slow and cool fermentation starts in stainless steel and finishes in neutral barrel where the wine matures for 4 months before bottling.
Linne Clay Loam - this whitish gray soil contains limestone pieces beginning 18”-24” below the surface. The presence of limestone captures and preserves the freshness in this wine, and being a heavier soil lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.
Santa Lucia Clay Loam - This soil lends itself to brighter, floral aromatics and lower pH. Being a heavier soil it also lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.
