Made from the Thomas Road Vineyard, this dry Rosé of Pinot Noir is sold in 375 mL bottles, making it the perfect wine to enjoy on a warm day on your patio.
Thomas Road Vineyard is located at the northeastern part of the Green Valley. Planted to clone Dijon 115 in 1997, this vineyard produces wine of dark berries with a bold firm mouth-feel. The vines planted on the rockier Sebastopol type soil historically produce wines of this consistent character.
Rosé of Pinot Noir is a product created from a process known as Saignée. Saignée is a five percent “bleed” taken from pinot noir juice during cold soak immediately following the harvest of pinot noir grapes. A small amount of the juice is then fermented separately in a small portable tank and made into a Rosé. The soft, feminine color of this wine is the result of being in contact with the skins for a limited amount of time, generally a few hours to one day.
