Winemaker's Notes

The charms and complexity of a well-made rosé are fully realized in this 2008 vintage of Belle Glos Pinot Noir Blanc, by presenting bright, fruit-filled flavors balanced with a crisply acidic structure. The style of this wine, traditionally known in France as oeil-de-perdrix (eye of the partridge), has been made by my family, using Pinot Noir grapes, for more than 35 years.

Making oeil-de-perdrix requires a gentle hand and a readiness to press the juice quickly once it reaches the right level of color. The juice is partially fermented in French oak barrels, which add enough rich texture and light spice to beautifully complement the generous fruit flavors.

Vibrant rose-salmon color. Pronounced aromas of ripe strawberry and green apple are supported by an undertone of light oak. The flavors are lively with cranberry and citrus zest notes. The full, lush mouthfeel is balanced by a brisk acidity and mineral elements, leading to a long-lasting finish.

Please enjoy the wine very well chilled.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
