Tasting Notes:

Our 2023 Rosé of Pinot Noir has a beautiful bouquet and palate of sweet strawberries, tropical guava, and pomegranate with great texture and a clean mineral finish with bright acidity.

How we make our Rosé

Our Rosé of Pinot Noir is made from Saignée juice collected & hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes as they move through the processing line and fermented clear in stainless steel tanks until all the sugar has been converted into alcohol. The color is achieved by an addition of 2-3% Pinot Noir, giving us the ability to have consistent color year after year. Finished with a screw-cap for continuously fresh and available wine ready for a day at the beach or a hearty holiday meal.

The 2023 Vintage

A whirlwind of a vintage, in 2023 September rains slowed the pace of harvest, bringing relief to our crew and vineyard partners and enhancing hang-time. Our growing season started slow with a late bud break, followed by steady ripening during a classic Oregon summer with warm days and cool nights, punctuated by one August heat spike. The welcome September rains gave our vineyard sites the hang time they needed for slower ripening and intense flavor development. Fruit arrived from our 20+ vineyard partners from September 15th through October 6th in beautiful condition with smaller-than-average yields. Expect intense, fruit-forward wines from this vintage.
