Rosé of Pinot Noir 2015


Pinot Noir

Growing Year Info

The 2015 harvest was the earliest that we have had in a while, starting on August 12th. Even though the previous three years were all very early harvests, 2015 had them all beat. We had a very dry spring with cool weather during bloom (April-May) which caused a long fruit-set period that resulted in some shatter, creating a reduced crop size by 35-50% in some vineyards. The combination of lower yields and early spring bud break meant the ripening period started off early and progressed rapidly. Despite these challenging growing conditions and lower yields, the fruit quality for 2015 was exceptional.

Tasting Notes

The 2015 Rosé of Pinot Noir has aromas of rhubarb and strawberry with a touch of rosemary and a mineral characteristic. The palate is full-bodied with a rich core of cherry and watermelon, mouth-coating with a medium-long finish and subtle notes of herb.
