2019 was an amazing year for cool-climate varietals. With plentiful spring rains, the growing season got off to a great start, especially for our dry-farmed Running Creek Estate. The season continued to provide ideal conditions, with cooler spring weather, moderate summer temperatures, and warm days in the runup to harvest. We picked each vineyard exactly when we wished, resulting in bright, crisp Chardonnays with pure, elegantly delineated flavors and vibrant and concentrated Pinot Noirs with silky, refined tannins.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir; Fermented cold, around 55 °F, to preserve the delicate bright fruit aromatics. Partially native fermented to create layered complexity to the blend.
This alluring Rosé of Pinot Noir is sourced from esteemed vineyards in the rolling hills of the Sonoma Coast appellation. From its beautiful light hue to its refreshing acidity and bountiful layers of strawberry, white peach, candied orange peel and jasmine, it offers a radiant expression of cool-climate rosé that concludes with a long, juicy finish.
