Rosé: just saying it makes one’s mind turn to warm breezes,
blue waters, fresh and bright foods, and good friends. Its great for the little things, the big things, and all of the in-between things, and it is here.
The Patton Valley Vineyard is a unique and delightful slice of grape growing heaven, right on top of a little outcropping in the foothills of the Coast Range at an elevation of 300-500 ft. Our vineyard has ample sun, cool breezes, and slopes to every aspect with a single soil type called Laurelwood. It’s basically paradise.
The wine leaps aromatically with grapefruit, tangerine, strawberry, cherry, and confection. In the glass, you’ll get orange pith, strawberry, and melon, with a nice broadness across the palate and characteristic acidity. The wine is balanced, fresh, and dry.
2016 was warm, even, and stress-free in the vineyard, with fruit reaching optimal rosé ripeness predictably, deliciously, and without fuss. We had balanced temperatures through harvest which helped things along in the cellar at a smooth clip, and we were even able to bend a tentative smile during the whole thing.
