In a wonderful tradition of rosés found in Portugal, Spain, Italy and France, this wine served well-chilled is perfect on its own, is refreshing at a picnic at the beach and marries extremely well with food. Mouth-filling with hints of pomegranate and plum, it's an ideal accompaniment to Salmon or a Teriyaki dish.
About the Vineyards
Our deep, sandy-soil 100-year-old vineyards in Contra Costa provide us with this wonderful Mourvèdre. These very special vineyards benefit from the cooling effects of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers which allows the grapes to hold their bright acidity. The combination of extremely well drained sandy soil and low average rainfall create a tonnage-limiting environment that produces grapes with great intensity.
