A magnificent saignee of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Napa Valley, California, United States
A magnificent saignee of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The tanks were bled within 5 minutes of destemming creating a salmon colored rosé. Barrel fermented and then aged for 4 months in neutral French Oak. Ripe red raspberry and watermelon with notes of kumquat, nectarine, and blood orange peel. Great acidity with no malolactic conversion induced. This well chilled rosé is better on a 100 degree day than a full on Cabernet Sauvignon at cellar temperature...the ultimate BBQ wine - you can still have your Cabernet Sauvignon and your steak/burger/ribs! Barrel fermented and aged for four months in neutral French oak.
