Wine Making Notes:

41% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 12% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot.

This rosé wine is a blend of one-third whole cluster pressed Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes and two-thirds saignée from Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The whole cluster portion was harvested in early September when the grapes were ripe enough to lend good fruit character and bright acidity to the wine without adding too dark a color. The saignée portion developed as the various red grapes were harvested throughout the season from mid-September to mid-October. All grapes were hand harvested in bright sunshine. Juice was clarified, then cool fermented using specific cultured yeasts. It was blended in early January.
