The elegance of this estate-grown Rosé is juxtaposed with its remarkable, vibrant rose petal hue. This rosé is light, bright, and playful from start to finish, with a nose comprised of key lime notes, accompanied by hibiscus and strawberry elements. Red fruit and floral notes highlight the approachable complexity of this wine, as black cherry, strawberry, rose water and lime zest components dance on the palate. A respectable acidity adds backbone to this rosé, leading to a clean finish with generous length. Enjoy now until at least 2019.

The 2016 Oregon Vintage turned out to be another in a string of remarkable years that has blessed the state with ideal growing conditions. Th e vintage started out early in Western Oregon with average bud break occurring in mid to late March. Unusually warm temperatures in April and May accelerated an early season effect, which caused vineyards to go into bloom by the 3rd week of June. The weather cooled substantially through August. The 2016 harvest began in early September and continued unabated until the end of the month, just in time to avoid the onset of rain in October.
These Pinot Noir grapes were cold soaked for 72 hours before being saigune and pressed. This wine was fermented with cultured yeasts in 100% stainless steel tanks, which were temperature controlled to maximize fruit character. Aging took place over two months in stainless steel tanks.
